The spy who hacked me: Measuring the security vulnerabilities of 3-D printing

In episode 65, Jordan and Charlie explore how a smartphone can hack a 3-D printer by measuring leaked energy and acoustic waves. Despite features such as encryption and watermarks, researchers at the University at Buffalo have found there are still security unknowns associated with 3-D printers that leave intellectual property vulnerable. However, the team says there are a few simple solutions to make 3-D printing more secure.
