Hardware Hacker How-To with Samy Kamkar from the @Hackaday #Superconference | @samykamkar

The entire first section of the talk on reverse engineering a credit card’s magnetic strip & chip security protection is laugh-out-loud ridiculous. That aside this is a really good talk for inspiring aspiring hackers and makers to better de-construct the challenge in front of them with sometimes cheap, sometimes free, frequently open-source tools – all for educational purposes only no doubt! (Check out Samy’s GitHub repos here for more.)

Samy Kamkar is well known for many things, but lately it has been his hardware security hacks that have been turning heads. The nice thing to know is that, despite not having a background in hardware, Samy is able to run with the best of hardware researchers. At the Hackaday SuperConference he offered words of advice for anyone trying to walk the path of discovery with an exciting new piece of electronics. One might say it’s a crash-course in how to be a hardware hacker.
