Mobile and Embedded Device Testing Techniques – Jon Hagar Shares Set of Software Attacks

Join us on  9/26/13 at  11am-12pm (EST) for a  Webinar with Jon Hagar author of

“Software Test Attacks to Break Mobile and Embedded Devices”

Jon shares a set of attacks against embedded software based on common modes of failure that embedded device testers can direct against their software to improve testing.

With many embedded devices, there are safety and health factors involved, so there is a reduced tolerance for software errors and in today’s world these devices are everywhere.

This attack approach can be applied to both mobile and embedded software devices.
