Summer of Shame

In May of 2017, Tactical Network Solutions (TNS) performed an in-depth firmware evaluation of the Belkin AC1900 F9K1124v1 firmware version 1.04.09. At the time of this evaluation, this was the latest firmware version available from the vendor.

Multiple serious vulnerabilities were discovered that can be exploited by unauthorized, unauthenticated attackers, resulting in root-level access to the F9K1124 router and complete control over the local network.


Firmware Evaluations & IoT Security Training

IoT Firmware Exploitation

This course is designed for white hat hackers, tinkerers, and hobbyists with limited experience and an interest in embedded systems analysis and firmware evaluation techniques.


Exploiting Real Time Operating Systems

This course will teach students how to analyze, reverse engineer, debug, and exploit embedded RTOS firmware.

Hands-on experience with a variety of real-world devices, RTOS’s, and architectures equip students with the practical knowledge and skills necessary to be proficient in RTOS vulnerability analysis, firmware evaluation, and exploitation.


Hardware Hacking Workshop

Have you ever wanted to reverse engineer a piece of electronics, but didn’t know where to begin? Do you lack the knowledge to troubleshoot hardware hacking problems? Did your Internet resources lack the “how to” hands-on instruction?

Wouldn’t it be nice if someone could take you by the hand and elevate your hardware reverse engineering knowledge from zero to hero in a logical, well organized manner?

Well the search is over because we have developed a new hardware reverse engineering course to do just that!
