In this keynote, 11 year old Reuben Paul aka RAPst4r discusses his experience of hacking into smart toys and questions if smartification without security is really a smart thing or not. To demonstrate his point, he hacks some smart toy cars on stage.


IoT is a buzz word but what does that mean? Internet of Things or Internet of Toys or Internet of Threats. In this keynote, 11 year old, Reuben Paul aka The Cyber Ninja would discuss and demonstrate how smart things (or toys) does not necessarily mean secure things.

He will share his experience, playing with and hacking toys and cover tools (sniffers, packet analyzers, Raspberry Pi, python scripts) that could make connected systems creepy. With demonstration, he will highlight the insecurities in smart technologies and discuss the application of these technologies in the real world (drones, autonomous cars, etc.), and share why it is important to understand these threats that can not only impact things in a game room, but real things that we use daily as well.

Come for a fun-filled, entertaining, and educational talk to find out how the hacking game is not limited just to the game room, and learn about why Hacking is Child’s play, literally!
