I had the extreme privilege to speak with Joe Grand, the creator of this week’s game, SCSIcide/Ultra SCSIcide. Why are there two versions? You’ll have to listen to the episode to find out! I would again like to thank Joe for taking the time to talk with me for the podcast, it was a great experience that I hope you will enjoy as much as I did.
In this episode we’re going to be spending some time with legendary hacker and prominent InfoSec community member Joe Grand, the Kingpin himself. We spoke about his three talks at DEF CON 24, the JTAGulator, the BSODomizer, career advice, and more!
The Joint Test Action Group (JTAG) got together in the mid-80s to make automated testing of circuit boards a standardized process. A JTAG port can be found on almost any piece of consumer electronics with enough brains to warrant it, and it’s also a tremendously useful entry point for debugging your own work and hacking into others. You’re going to need to use JTAG someday.
Leading hacker and security expert Joe Grand uses Extech EX410 digital multimeters as part of the standard equipment in his popular Hands-On Hardware Hacking and Reverse Engineering course given at major events around the world.
