Extracting the firmware from embedded systems is currently a cumbersome, manual task that often involves significant trial & error, and significant skill. A technical expert needs to probe various connectors on the device, incl. pin layouts, baud rates, voltages etc. Once successful, the technical expert may be presented with a console shell, which may sometimes ask for login information. Once logged in, there is often a stripped-down operating system that makes mounting external storage challenging. Upon successfully mounting external storage (e.g. via USB), the firmware can be extracted and uploaded into the binary analysis solution.
