I was at the Sec-T conference in Stockholm yesterday. It was great being back and to meet all the great people.
There were two presentations that really stood out among the others; Torbjörn Lofterud - iPhone raw NAND recovery and forensics, and Travis Goodspeed - Trashing USB layers using the Facedancer Board.
I wasn’t that interested in all the peeking and poking around inside the iPhone, but the insights and details that Torbjörn shared about NAND based memories was a nice refresh and also provided some more detail to the topic than I had read up on before. Awesome!
The USB trashing session, apart from just meeting people, is probably the main reason to go to this conference. It always awesome to hear Travis rant about everything in his personal way, but what he shares in knowledge is just outstanding. I am amazed about how much time this man must have on his hand to dig into things as deep as he does. And he’s then willing to share all his research hours like this. I would love to drink beer over a soldering iron with this guy!
I was lucky enough to get a Facedancer board from Traivs yesterday. Thank a million man!
