Episode 5 of Planes, Trains, & Tanks!

Episode 5: Reverse engineering is the process of taking an engineered artifact like a software program, a coffee pot, or a car and figuring out how it works at a deeper level. Sometimes, we reverse engineer something to build features on top of it. Other times, we’re interested in understanding its security properties. While reverse engineering of information technology systems like cell phones and computers is a well-known field, reverse engineering operational technology like a military weapon system or a locomotive is relatively less well-known. In this episode, special guests Rob Peaselee and Brian McCord discuss this exciting frontier of technology hacking and cybersecurity.
