Open Source Firmware Conference 2018, September, Germany

Mission: Change the way of firmware development, collaborate with others and share knowledge. Closed source firmware development has been the de-facto standard for the electronics industry since its inception. This didn’t change even as open-source took off in other areas. Now, with changing use cases and tighter security requirements, it’s more important than ever to take open-source firmware development to the next level.

It appears PTSecurity may have a GUI Debugger for Intel ME??

The “Minix Inside” stickers look great, click on the tweet from frdnd.

Hoping CCC staff does the great job they do ever year and get the videos for these events online quickly! 😉

European coreboot conference 2017: Call for Papers

Note the request for SECURITY talks!

We are particularly interested in advances in the application of technology in a particular discipline primarily around coreboot, hardware, firmware, and security. As a result, the conference will be structured around the following topics:
– Free and Open Source hardware and firmware.
– Attacks against current hardware and firmware, like side and covert channel attacks.
– Firmware and hardware reverse engineering.
– coreboot payloads, extensions, and features.
– Advances of coreboot and UEFI on the market.
– Applications of free and open source hardware/firmware in practice.
– State-of-the-art security in embedded devices.

Conference talks, lightning talks, and workshops will be video taped and published afterwards. If a recording is not desired by a speaker or workshop instructor, no recordings will be made (notification in advance of the talk / workshop requested)[…]
