[ NNSquad ] Open Source Smart Meter Hacking Framework Released

Open Source Smart Meter Hacking Framework Released

http://j.mp/LGUT2S  (Security Week)

  "Termineter uses the serial port connection that interacts with the
   meter's optical infrared interface to give the user access to the
   smart meter's inner workings.  SecureState's Termineter's user
   interface is much like the interface used by the Metasploit
   penetration testing framework. It relies on modules to extend its
   testing capabilities.  Spencer McIntyre, a member of SecureState's
   Research and Innovation Team, is scheduled to demonstrate Termineter
   in a session "How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Smart
   Meter," at Security B-Sides Vegas on July 25.  Another researcher, Don
   Weber, a senior security analyst with InGuardians, is also scheduled
   to talk about smart meter hacking and unveil his own testing tool on
   the same day as part of Black Hat Las Vegas. The tool, dubbed
   OptiGuard, would demonstrate how infrared ports on a smart meter can
   be penetrated and vulnerabilities exploited."
