I'll be speaking at Last Hope in Manhattan next month. My abstract follows.
Introduction to MCU Firmware Analysis and Modification with MSP430static
The Texas Instruments MSP430 is a low-power, 16-bit microcontroller which is rapidly gaining in popularity in the embedded world. MSP430static is a tool for reverse engineering the MSP430's firmware. Following a quick tour under the hood of this tool, this lecture will demonstrate how to analyze, modify, and reflash a black-box firmware image.
