Deauthenticating 101

This is a light-hearted workshop, which will take a simple development board and transform it into a beautifully brilliant deauthenticator. We will look at the components of the development board of choice and learn about how to program it to become such a cool hacking tool. We will learn how to sniff network packets and identify the correct ones to aim and send a deauth packet to a wireless access point. Creating a deauthenticator is not a new concept and many bits of existing software/firmware float about the inter-webs, however understanding some of these core concepts can really help you build a bigger picture of how devices connect to networks and how to mitigate against such attacks.

ATTENDEES: Please bring a laptop with Arduino IDE installed.
