This talk covers the interesting intersection of Applesque, cheap, and increasingly ubiquitous network hardware. Here we describe our journey into reverse engineering parts of MikroTik system to gain access to hardware features and the shell behind the RouterOS that has no “ls”. Building on our initial talk, we go deeper with our teardown and discuss the deeper aspects of MikroTik engineering choices.
