June Newsletter: Targets, Training, Order Pickup at RECON, Fun Videos

Read the latest newsletter over on our TinyLetter page. Be sure to subscribe to get these updates yourself.


Welcome to NewAE News – June edition. We’re following up with another quick update here, as we have lots of news (and a few time-sensitive pieces) to share.

Targets

To follow up with our previous newsletter, the STM32F1, STM32F3, and STM32F4 targets are now available. The largest STM32F4 target has a whopping 1MByte FLASH and 192KByte SRAM. We’re also adding support to program them via ChipWhisperer – you’ll find this option already in the “develop” branch as a new menu option, but if you’re not in a rush wait for the next software release. For now we recommend using an external programmer.

Trainings

We’re also going to be running a training in San Francisco this November 6th & 7th. It’s being run alongside training courses by Dmitry Nedospasov, Joe Fitzpatrick, and Joe Grand. We’ll be running our 2-day training course (same one as at Black Hat USA). You can see details at https://hardwaresecurity.training/ , and contact us for more information (email sales@newae.com ) or buy a seat online at the previous URL. This training will have limited seating (we’ve only confirmed a room with 10, but are hopefully able to offer up to around 20 seats).

Talks

Are you headed to RECON in Montreal next week? Colin will be headed there to discuss his previous work on hacking smart light bulbs. In addition to his normal hardware demos, we’re offering the chance to pickup any orders placed until June 14th for free at RECON. If you’d like to take advantage of this please email sales@newae.com, as we need to ensure we’ve got your item in stock. We’ll provide you with a special code to remove the shipping cost on our webstore.

After that Colin is headed to ESCAR  on June 21-22nd to provide some demos of hacking automotive systems using ChipWhisperer. These demos will use on our new MPC5748G Target Board, as Colin can demonstrate attacks using CAN communications along with other special features of these devices. Slides for both the RECON and ESCAR talk will be posted afterwards if you can’t make them in person!

And talking about fun demos – don’t miss this walk-through of breaking AES as part of the Riscure CTF challenge that LiveOverflow posted recently on YouTube:

Tutorials

We’ve added another new tutorial recently too – this one looks at the ChipWhisperer-Pro’s features. You can see the Stream Mode & SAD Triggering Tutorial on our wiki.

That’s all for now – thanks for sticking around!
