wiredmikey (1824622) writes "Author Robert Vamosi writes an interesting piece on how security researchers are using open source "prototyping boards" and other open source tools now available via the Internet for rapid prototyping of tools used in hardware analysis.

"The days of saying it would take the resources of a nation-state to discover or exploit vulnerabilities in a particular piece of hardware in an industrial control system or a healthcare environment are rapidly fading," he writes. Vendors who do not test their products before selling them into the field are doomed to be targets of future research and, perhaps, attacks.""
