Device Lab Info

  • New at the Device Lab this year will be Bluetooth Devices! You’ll want to prepare ahead of time to be ready to investigate these devices. 

  • We recommend the following Bluetooth Adapter Sena UD100 which is known to work with Kali and other linux distros

  • We also recommend practice with Hackgnar’s Bluetooth CTF found here: 

  • Remember to practice SAFE and AUTHORIZED hacking! Only attack Bluetooth addresses that you have permission to access. 

  • We will be posting the authorized Bluetooth Address list on-site in the Device Lab. Please only interact with AUTHORIZED addresses.

The healthcare community learned that there is a greater need for resiliency, contingency plans and backup plans in how it functions. Looking at this pandemic from a biohacking / security researcher point of view, how can we take the lessons learned, pragmatic data, and insight and turn it into actionable knowledge to improve future decisions and outcomes for the biomedical ecosystem as a whole. 


As we move forward, this is what we will be exploring this year for our talks, devices, CTF challenges, table tops, and workshops to assist in the fortification of full stack biotechnologists for the future digitalisation of healthcare.
