Pranking with IoT: Hack or be hacked?

Description of the materials

Pranking with IoT: Hack or be hacked? is a course for students to gain knowledge of and have hands-on experience with Internet of Things and hacking.

Through an IoT kit the students become capable of setting up a system to turn a device on and off (a lamp, a ventilator, a speaker or other devices) with a remote. When the IoT kits are set up and tested the students are able to hack each other's IoT systems and/or use the devices to hack the teachers’ room.

The course focuses on discussions and reflections about the societal and ethical impact of IoT and the consequences of hacking.
