In this presentation, I would like to share my journey of delving deep into internals and security of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives. As games are distributed within optical media, those embedded devices were intended to contain the best security possible. I will demonstrate a multiple hardware hacks and several software vulnerabilities that allowed to dump firmware and get code execution on multiple models of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives.
In this presentation, I will share the following:
1) I will provide in-depth analysis of vulnerabilities and their exploitation to achieve code execution on multiple models of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives
2) I will discuss problems that I’ve encountered while reverse engineering the firmware and how I solved (some of) them
3) I will talk about security features of Sony PlayStation Blu-ray disc drives
4) I will explain what engineers did right and how achieving code execution on the drive doesn’t lead to full compromise of security
