Ruxcon 2016 Hardware Hacking Village

Thanks to all who visited us at the Ruxcon 2016 HHV, hopefully you got some value out of my presentations and such (I’m sure you got value out of the other presenters at least).


I’ve uploaded new Gerbers/Drill file for the SimpleSolder kit to my Ruxcon 2016 HHV page, these have the assorted cock ups from the original design corrected, just in case anybody wants to go make their own.

I’ve also included a DigiKey basket link, though for one-off quantities you’re probably better off going elsewhere if you’re AU based.


The RuxBadge build instructions, firmware and firmware source are also up there, if you want to write your own firmware (or modify mine) you’ll need to get a hold of the appropriate STM32 Standard Peripheral Libraries and dump them in an appropriate place (if you attempt to make it before you do that it’ll bitch at you) but other than that it should be pretty straight forward, I think there’s a README in there which has some details about what’s what and build targets and such.

dnz is going to write a tutorials on how to load firmware onto the badge using the UART bootloader, he’s also got a tutorial from last year covering how to do the same with BusPirate (though you’ll need to figure out the connections yourself) and perhaps how to find the flag in the badge firmware so keep an eye out on his site http://www.drkns.net/.


When I get around to grabbing them off my burner lappy I’ll also throw the slide decks from my presentations up there.

So, Who The Hell Is This Guy Anyway?

I’m a random Australian geek/maker/hacker/whatever the hell you want to call me.

In order to keep myself sane (well, sane-ish…) I basically do whatever is interesting me at any given time; but I suppose you’d say my “core competencies” are electronics, software development/reverse engineering, information security, forensics, systems/network admin. I also do wood and metal work, general engineering, chemistry, car stuff and I’m a halfway decent amateur tailor.

I’ve had this domain lying around for a while (i.e. years), decided it was probably about I actually did something with it, this was mainly catalysed by needing somewhere to stuff the bits and pieces I developed for the Ruxcon 2016 Hardware Hacking Village.

I’ve no idea how often I’ll actually bother to post anything here, but I suspect it’s going to come in fits and starts, initially I’ll post some stuff from the work I did at/for Ruxcon this year, but other than that it’s liable to be a matter of when I’m doing something that I think is sufficiently interesting/worth documenting and whether or not I have time to actually write it up.
