It lasts until it's over.

It's for people interested in security, not the more general "make
stuff" kind of hacking.

Date of Meeting:

Always second Sunday of the month at 2pm

This month we present:

Breaking the [Radio]Waves for Fun and Profit

Software defined radio has been around for quite a bit, but only now
its impact appears dangerously evident to the security community:
Creating rogue GSM stations, defibrillate pacemakers remotely, open
garage doors? The non-standard radio waves, in the past considered
safe due to expensive hardware requirements to receive and transmit,
are now as vulnerable as 802.11 was in the past.

In the first section of the presentation hardware tools such as the USRP
and more recent Jawbreaker will be presented as well as software to listen,
transmit and investigate captured signals. The second part will be a demo,
where a signal from a RF device transmitted in an unknown frequency will be
captured, demodulated and recreated as a proof of concept. Participant
could participate in the demo - I will provide some rtl-sdr devices or you
can purchase one to play with it ($25 in Amazon).

2169 Mission St, San Francisco, CA, USA, Earth, Milky Way, Known Universe

Finding the space can be tricky; it has a red circular logo above the
otherwise inconspicuous door, and is next to a market that sells
fruit.  It is very close to 16th and Mission BART stop.  If you're
driving, leave 15-30 minutes extra to find parking due to the heavy
traffic around there.  I often use a lot near 16th and Mission.


If you would like to be a speaker, or know someone who would,

in a Referer field.
