Autodyne: Rapid IoT firmware emulation for the discerning professional

Firmadyne is an amazing tool that allows users to emulate firmware images of embedded devices. Over the years, we began creating simple shell wrappers for all the Firmadyne commands. We determined that scripting a Docker container that simplifies installation and usage of the scripts used within Firmadyne will help other individuals get started in IoT firmware emulation.

This talk centers around the release of a simple tool called Autodyne; which scripts Firmadyne. The release will include a Docker container designed to quickly start emulating firmware samples.

During the talk, we will use Autodyne to show how quickly anyone can get started with firmware emulation using Autodyne and show how Autodyne can be combined with other tools to aid in the discovery of IoT vulnerabilities.
