IEMI Threats for Information Security: Remote Command Injection on Modern Smartphones

  title={IEMI Threats for Information Security: Remote Command Injection on Modern Smartphones},
  author={C. Kasmi and Jose Lopes Esteves},
  journal={IEEE Transactions on Electromagnetic Compatibility},
Numerous papers dealing with the analysis of electromagnetic attacks against critical electronic devices have been made publicly available. In this paper, we exploit the principle of front-door coupling on smartphones headphone cables with specific electromagnetic waveforms. We present a smart use of intentional electromagnetic interference, resulting in finer impacts on an information system than a classical denial of service effect. As an outcome, we introduce a new silent remote voice… Expand
