Presentations - Fitness Tracker: Hack In Progress

  • Location: Security Theater
  • Speaker: Axelle Apvrille
  • Date and time: 09. October 2015. 10:15 - 10:55

This talk is about hacking a well-known fitness wristband, the Fitbit Flex.

Wearables are extremely trendy nowadays, but actually, we know little about their security: what information do they send on us? how reliable are they ? can they be hacked? etc.
 
The fact they rely on proprietary protocols does not help. So, precisely, 
we focus on understanding the communication with the tracker.
 
Eventually, that's how we learn how to turn the Flex into a wearable 
random number generator.
 
This is an updated version of my Hack in Paris talk - with new reverse engineered dongle messages.
