 How I purchase costly Smart Devices in low price by not to wasting money for testing devices


Note: this article based on the india location


Many of you are interested in IoT Pentesting and Device hacking. One of the main challenges for entry in this domain is money.

As per me, for learning I do not invest much money on the hardware as there chances of me bricking the device. But if it’s for a project, I definitely buy the device even if it’s expensive. Check the below flow that I follow for buying devices

  1. OLX India,

  2. Amazon

  3. Flipkart

  4. CEX (many branches all over world)

  5. Banggood

  6. Chor bazaars (thief markets)

  7. Electronic bazaar (street side)

  8. Known people



So let’s see, If i want to buy one router to start my journey into router basic knowledge to get into IoT Pentesting 

Attack vectors for the Routers like

  1. Network 

  2. Embedded application

  3. Firmware

  4. Hardware 

  5. Others depends on the router features like android app and others

1st attempt is lets check with OLX and Banggood

OLX:

See above image is showing the routers from 200 rs to 2K sometimes will get gaming routers for cheap before validating clearly and verify properly (do not do online payment before you buy from OLX)



Banggood: currently shipping on hold due to corona 

But cheap and best you will get from here


FLIPKART AND AMAZON also you can buy cheap IoT Gadgets like smartband and others


Search as per your required device.


CEX: 

From cex will get smart devices with warranty with reasonable price 

I have used to buy from these as well 


Chor bazaars (thief markets) : 


Thief Markets are not much secure areas and not even trust area , but for testing any devices is like better one , in this markets we may get the sometimes good products some times bad products 


So we don’t have to worry about bricking these devices since they are not expensive


Electronic bazaar (street side)


Special streets for electronics where we can get prototypes and cloned devices, over the world this type streets everywhere, also on roadside will get cheap china products or damaged once


all we purchasing for bricking the device only.


Known people:


If anyone from my circle they want to sell any electronic device or smart devices, I always offer the reasonable price and bought from them.
