Using Superpowers for Hardware Reverse Engineering

Presented at BSidesLV 2014, Aug. 6, 2014, 11 a.m. (60 minutes)

Superpowers, normally used by superheroes in the battle of good versus evil, are also accessible to engineers and hackers in equipment used for failure analysis and verification of PCB fabrication and component assembly processes. In this mostly visual presentation, Joe shares his experiences of using lasers, X-rays, and sound waves to facilitate the reverse engineering of electronic products and circuit boards.
