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.

Drive all the hacks! Learn about automotive threats and experience what is like to drive in a vehicle while it is being hacked in a full-motion hacking rig.

In the workshop, participants will be introduced to the latest automotive cyber security standards and invited to explore threat scenarios that could apply to current and future vehicles. The group will then have the opportunity to carry out and experience simulated automotive attacks from the driver’s seat in a safe environment using the Copper Horse vehicle hacking demonstrator, a setup that features: − a 3-screen panoramic view of the built environment, with complete telemetry output, − motion platform (3-axis) with driving peripherals, − external control of key operations (brakes, acceleration, wipers, steering etc.) separate to the driver, − and includes real world automotive components that communicate via industry protocols.

Simulations will include both cars and trucks.
