OpenOCD has many use cases. Many people use it to debrick home routers, some developers use it to debug firmware for microcontrollers. The fearless debug Linux kernel code with it. I use it to reverse engineer closed or not completely open parts of firmware on some hardware, just for fun. This is an important swiss knife tool for many embedded developers and hackers.
What else can we do with OpenOCD? In this talk, I will go through other, not so common use cases of OpenOCD:
- Use Boundary Scan not only to test proper soldering but also test software configuration.
- Use it for hardware troubleshooting.
- Use it in combination with IDA Pro for reverse engineering or debugging. Or maybe use radare2 to do that?

This talk should provide you with some ideas and inspiration.
