The Hardware CTF organized by Quarkslab team is there for the USA first time!

Ever wondered how to break a smart lock? How to spy on embedded devices? How do car chips work? How to desolder and reball a flash chip? Then this CTF is for you!

We've got plenty of challenges related to various themes such as RFID, Bluetooth, Automotive, Side-Channel Analysis, (de)Soldering, Radio, and much more. We will provide the hardware hacking tools you might need (Soldering Iron, Logic Analyzer, etc.) as well as guidance on how to use them.

Just grab your PC and come try to solve our challenges. You'll have fun, learn new skills and who knows, maybe use these skills to break real embedded devices and propose a talk for next year!
