Wireless Hacking

This is just a quick post to provide the presentation I gave tonight at PwnSchool.  If you’d like to review it you can download it here.  Thanks!

Topics covered:

  • Introduction to Radio Frequency
  • Wireless  Hacking (WEP and WPA2)
  • RFID Hacking (HID Prox and MIFARE)
  • Bluetooth Hacking (Bluelog/bluesnarfer/Wireshark/etc)

The Four Three Rule of Team PenTesting

Two posts in one night, because I’m catching up on some backlog items.  I’ve been teaching/training a team on PenTesting lately, and it’s caused me to think through some personal truths and approaches that I’ve taken for several years.  While going through that process I came to realize that I’d never really formally codified them; this is my attempt to do just that.  It all comes down to what I’m now going to call the “Four Three Rule of Team PenTesting”.

RFID Fundamentals

I realized I didn’t have any good notes on Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags/badges/etc, so I figured it was time to compile that and update it while I’m at it.  This post is just a quick run-down of the frequencies, types, and common cards/IDs.  If you don’t know what an RFID is, for the purposes of most pentesting it’s a security badge or a key fob, like you can see in the image at the top of this posting.

Introduction to Hardware Protocols

As you begin diving into hardware hacking and reading printed circuit boards (PCB) you will likely come across several common protocols.  This article isn’t intended to be an exhaustive list of content, but rather a quick guide to identifying which protocols are commonly used, what they require, and what common tools will let you interface with them.  I’ll be covering the following protocols in this article:

  • RS-232
  • USB
  • I2C
  • SPI
  • JTAG
  • UART
  • USART
