Vuntie - cloud penetration test




In 2017, a Las Vegas casino became the target of an unexpected security breach. The culprit? A smart fish tank. Equipped with advanced sensors and connected to the casino's network for maintenance, the fish tank presented an irresistible opportunity for cybercriminals.

Exploiting vulnerabilities in the fish tank's software, the hackers infiltrated the casino's network. They navigated their way to the high-roller database, extracted 10 gigabytes of data, and dispatched it to a device in Finland.

This incident underscores the potential vulnerabilities that IoT devices can introduce. Even seemingly innocuous devices can become gateways for hackers if not properly secured. At Vuntie, we specialize in IoT penetration testing. Our mission is to identify and address these often overlooked risks, ensuring robust security for your IoT devices and systems.



Our approach to IoT penetration testing is thorough, meticulous, and tailored to the unique needs of each client. We conduct our tests from the perspective of an external malicious black-hat hacker and can conduct either black box, grey box, or white box tests based on your requirements. Our process is as follows:

Scoping: Our testing experts will engage in discovery activities, such as understanding your IoT penetration test security needs and requirements, existing SLAs, potential vulnerability exposures, and defining the scope. We also analyze other aspects such as complexity, tailoring possibilities, and threat intelligence focus.

Reconnaissance: We conduct IoT security discovery activities, such as reviewing hardware flaws, firmware at risk, and other potential vulnerability exposures. We also engage in reverse engineering of elements extracted from the hardware equipment.

Exploitation: During this phase, we perform the attacks, trying to breach the IoT device. This tests your IoT product's resiliency to attack, the coverage of your security monitoring, and the efficacy of your detection capabilities.

Remediation Verification: Our IoT penetration testers perform a follow-up assessment to ensure that the remediation and mitigation steps from the exploitation phase have been accurately implemented. This also enables us to confirm that your security posture is aligned with industry best practices.

Cleanup, Document Analysis, and Reporting: We conduct a thorough cleanup after the testing process, analyze the results, and create detailed reports. These reports are then presented to stakeholders, allowing you to easily benchmark the security level of each process based on the results of the penetration tests. We can also assist with the implementation of countermeasures if requested by the customer.

At Vuntie, our methodology for IoT penetration testing ismore than just a series of steps—it's a philosophy that guides everything we do. We believe in a comprehensive, agile, and strategic approach that not only identifies and addresses vulnerabilities but also empowers your organization to maintain a robust defense against potential threats to your IoT devices and systems.

Blending Best Practices: We combine the best practices from well-known methodologies such as OWASP IoT, PTES, and NIST with the agility of Scrum and the integration of DevSecOps. This unique blend allows us to adapt quickly to new threats and changes in your IoT environment, and to integrate security into every stage of the development and deployment process.

Continuous Pentesting: Our primary approach involves performing integral and incremental pentests at every stage of the IoT lifecycle, from development to deployment and maintenance. This allows us to detect and fix vulnerabilities promptly, ensuring that your IoT devices and systems are always protected.

Tailored Solutions: We understand that every IoT ecosystem is unique. That's why we tailor our methodology to meet the specific needs and challenges of your organization. Whether you're deploying a handful of IoT devices or managing a complex network of interconnected systems, we can create a testing strategy that's just right for you.

Advanced Tools: We use only the most reliable and practical tools for IoT penetration testing. Our toolkit includes firmware analysis tools like Binwalk, network sniffers like Wireshark, hardware hacking tools like JTAGulator, software vulnerability scanners like Nessus, and SQL injection tools like SQLMap. Our commitment to using the best tools guarantees accurate and comprehensive results for our clients.

Commitment to Innovation: At Vuntie, we are committed to providing innovative cybersecurity products and technologies with the mission to defend human rights globally and challenge evil. Our highly skilled team provides unparalleled cybersecurity and hardware engineering services, utilizing the same tactics as cyber criminals to ensure the best defense for our global clients.
