The Intel CHIPSEC team doesn’t get out much to give training to the public often, so this upcoming 2-day of CHIPSEC training at TROOPERS is nice!

Security below the OS with CHIPSEC framework
Oleksandr Bazhaniuk, Yuriy Bulygin

A variety of attacks targeting platform firmware have been discussed publicly, drawing attention to the pre-boot and firmware components of the platform such as BIOS and SMM, UEFI secure boot and OS loaders. This workshop provides a hands-on opportunity to learn how to use an open source CHIPSEC framework to test systems for vulnerabilities in low-level platform firmware components, problems with firmware security protections as well as develop your own modules in CHIPSEC which test for known issues or implement tools identifying new issues. Agenda:

* Introduction to platform hardware and access with CHIPSEC
* Introduction to platform firmware such as BIOS, UEFI firmware, SMI handlers
* Overview of main components of CHIPSEC framework
* Analyzing main firmware components and configuration
* Assessing systems for vulnerabilities in the BIOS and other firmware
* Developing vulnerability testing modules
* Developing fuzzers for firmware interfaces and other security tools
* BIOS forensics with CHIPSEC
