Embedded devices outnumber PCs at least 10 to 1, and include things as diverse as phones, routers, game consoles, car ECUs, and so forth. Many of these devices use cryptography to authorize and encrypt their firmware. This talk focuses on how security was done on platforms such as the iPhone and how their security was broken.

Companies spend millions on these security systems, and they are being broken by high school and college age kids. This talk will question why this is, what manufacturers are doing wrong, and how they can do it right.

If you unaware of the whole story, the young hacker George Hotz aka GeoHot was involved in the PlayStation 3 firmware 3.55 jailbreak. Sony sued GeoHot. After that US District Judge Susan Yvonne Illston approved Sony’s request for temporary restraining order (TRO) against GeoHot. The young hacker has been ordered to immediately stop the distribution of Homebrew Signing Tools for PS3 3.55 Jailbreak. So at the moment you can not find PS3 Jailbreak Root keysdePKG firmware decrypter and signing tools on GeoHot’s website as he has removed it from there.
