    27th Annual Chaos Communication Congress: bushing, marcan, and sven discuss hacking

    Once a year some of the brightest and highly skilled hackers from around the world gather to discuss some of their favorite topics. The event is held over the course of 4 days and is being hosted this year at the bcc Berliner Congress Center in Berlin, Germany.

    The Congress offers lectures and workshops on a multitude of topics and attracts a diverse audience of thousands of hackers, scientists, artists, and utopians from all around the world.
    Tomorrow, 29/12/10, the convention will host a workshop on Console Hacking. It will be hosted by three giants in the scene: bushing, marcan, and sven.

    Console Hacking 2010
    PS3 Epic Fail

    Over 70 million Wiis, over 40 million Xbox 360s and over 35 million Playstation 3s have been sold in the last few years. That makes over 145 million embedded devices out there and most of them are just used to play games. But what can you do with them if you don't like playing games? You hack them to make them run your own code of course! We're going to talk about the various hacks that you can use to gain control of your hardware and make it do what you want it to do.

    2010 saw the first hacks for the Playstation 3, soon after Sony removed Other OS functionality. We will detail the operation of current PS3 exploits, show a few new ones and explain where and how Sony went wrong when designing its security system, and show how these holes can be used to gain control over the system and bring Linux back to the PS3.

    We will also go over hacks for the other consoles, including the JTAG hack for the Xbox 360 which made running homebrew code more convenient, and the cat-and-mouse games that Nintendo played with us to combat Wii hacks. We might also check out the security of their 'new' handheld console - the DSi.

    Gamers might find this talk interesting even though it is targeted at those who hack (or design) embedded system security. A basic knowledge of crypto is therefore assumed. We will also be present in the Hackcenter before and after the presentation for those of you who are interested in learning more about the subject.
