We will give an introduction to the physical security of embedded security devices. We will discuss techniques to attack such devices and measures to protect against the attacks. We will provide an overview of the work that we do in our embedded systems security lab, and if time permits we wil show a demo. We will present our recent hack of the TESLA model S key fob and report on our experience with TESLA and other car manufacturers.
