Visualizing Cyberspace, Hacking Cars, and the Takeover of the Internet of Things – CF024

This week on Cyber Frontiers Christian is joined by Ashton and Jim to cover a variety of hot topics on the cyber frontier. Ashton first gives us a deep dive into his technique for visualizing various computer binaries and code using his own Binary Art creation. We quickly bridge the gap to how it relates to reverse engineering, and specifically discuss where reverse engineering is highly applicable in many of today’s security issues. Christian then takes a deep dive into the Jeep and Chrysler car hacks, discussing not only the challenges in security engineering of these devices – but what the implications are for the global Internet of Things (IoT). We get a bit technical, a bit philosophical, and super fun as always!

Cyber Frontiers is all about Exploring Cyber security, Big Data, and the Technologies Shaping the Future Through an Academic Perspective!   Christian Johnson, a student at the University of Maryland will bring fresh and relevant topics to the show based on the current work he does.
