Hacking Gadgets and Working with Heise

With its online IT news platform “Heise online” and magazines like “c’t” Heise Medien GmbH & Co. KG is one of Germany’s biggest IT-related publisher. Therefore, I was happy when they offered me the opportunity to write some small articles, do an interview and even a video podcast.

Back in 2017 they hand an article introducing an collection of “Hacking Gadgets” in c’t 18 /2017. Because the article was liked by its readers and there have been several new hacking gadgets/tools released since, they decided to make a new one. As a penetration tester with focus on hardware test, I was happy to give some insights on the tools I use (not all of them made it to the article).

Apart from writing about the hacking tools, I did an interview. The goal was to give the readers a better understanding of why some of the tools can be used for good. Therefore, I talked about my daily work and how I use the equipment to find security vulnerabilities.

Since 2014 Heise provides a video podcast alongside its c’t magazine: “c’t uplink”. As I was visiting Heise in Hannover for the interview anyway, I took the opportunity to be part of the c’t uplink episode on hacking gadgets.
