dc.description.abstractVolatile memory like SDRAM, forms an integral part of any computer system. It stores variety of data including sensitive data like passwords and PIN. The data stored in SDRAM is wiped off on power-off. However, by bringing the RAM to freezing cold temperature before power off, the data can persist for several seconds, allowing recovery through cold boot attacks. In this work, we investigate the vulnerability of IoT device such as Raspberry Pi against cold boot attack for the first time. Our study found that even though the boot sequence is different from laptop, personal computer, and smartphone, we demonstrate that it is still possible to steal the RAM data, even when the bootloader is not public. The net cost of the attack was under 10 dollars and 99.99% of the RAM data was successfully recovered.en_US
