600.243.13: Hardware Hacking

Course Number: EN.600.243.13
Credits: 2
Distribution: Q E
Schedule: Dates: Jan 5-23, 2015 MWTh 2:30-5:45PM
Instructors: Michael Rushanan and Paul Martin

Our favorite electronic devices, such as gaming consoles and smartphones, have a common root hardware. These deceptively simple interconnections of electronic components perform arithmetic and logic operations that enable our devices to interact with us and extend methods for security, communication, and marketing. In this course we survey current events, articles, and academic papers that furnish a practical, and relevant, understanding of hardware hacking (e.g., open-source hardware). We proivde hands-on demonstrations that explore design and prototyping, system repair and modification, and hardware emulation.

Outline of Daily Activities:

  • Assigned Reading and Recent Events [before class]
  • Current Events Discussion [~20 minutes]
  • Assigned Reading Discussion by the Students [~40 minutes]
  • Topic of the Day by the Instructors [~1 hour]
  • Demonstration [~1 hour]

Topics of interest:

  • Basic Electronics
  • Computer Architecture
  • Microcontrollers
  • Gaming Consoles
  • Smartphones
  • NFC (near field communication)
  • SDR (software defined radio)
  • IoT (internet of things)
  • HSM (hardware security modules)
