A journey into IoT Forensics - Episode 5 - Analysis of the Apple HomePod and the Apple Home Kit Environment (aka thanks RN Team!)

This is the fifth blog post on the analysis of IoT devices. The first blog post was about the  analysis of Samsung refrigerator , the second one was about the  analysis of an LG Smart TV , the third one was about the analysis of an  Ematic Android TV OS Box , and the fourth one was about the analysis of an iRobot Roomba 690 . All the previous blog posts were based on images made available for research by VTO Labs . This fifth post is about the acquisition and analysis of the Apple Homepod and the Apple HomeKit environment. This is based on a research developed by our RN team during 2020: in particular, it was the research topic of the thesis of our internship Francesca Maestri , who successfully obtained her computer science degree last year. Congrats and thanks for your great work Francesca! This work was first presented online in June 2020 at the DFRWS EU 2020, as a short presentantion. It was also the topic of the famous DFRWS Rodeo. Presentation from the DFRWS, the Rodeo dataset, q

This the fourth blog post on the analysis of IoT devices images made available by  VTO Labs . The first blog post was about the  analysis of Samsung refrigerator , the second one was about the  analysis of an LG Smart TV , the third one was about the analysis of an Ematic Android TV OS Box , and this one is about the analysis of an iRobot Roomba 690. [ START DISCLAIMER ] I only had one dataset, so the testing is limited and not to be considered strong and verified.  The goal is to open a discussion and to provide a first glimpse into the analysis of these types of devices. [ END DISCLAIMER ] The iRobot Roomba 690 The fourth candidate for my research in the  VTO Labs dataset  was the image of an  iRobot Roomba 690 , aWi-Fi Connected Robot Vacuum manufactured by iRobot Corporation. An old book (2006) on Hacking Roomba is available and the book website is still active . A forum on robot hacking is also available on Robot Reviews .  I was not able to find any previous forensics research o
