In this course we will have a look at a couple of hardware gadgets which can be used for hacking.
I will present you how a keystroke injection attack works and present USB sticks like USB Rubber Ducky and while show you how to write your own scripts to exploit this vulnerability.
In a series of lecture I will show you how you can build a lower-cost version of the USB Rubber Ducky by using cheap Chinese made development boards which are compatible with the Arduino platform.
After you understand how the attack works and are able to build your own device, I will explain what options are available in order to protect yourself.
WiFi Jammers or to call them more properly WiFi deauthers, are basically a very easy way of kicking everybody out from a specific Wi-Fi network and if wanted, making the Wi-Fi network useless.
This section is dealing with a known vulnerability in the IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) protocol even with WPA2. While the data you are transferring by the Wi-Fi network is encrypted and better protected, the problem are the so called management frames that are not always authenticated, thus allowing an attacker for example to disconnect the devices from the network by sending a so-called deauthentication frame, used to terminate a connection.
I will show you how it is done and what you can do to protect yourself.
I plan to explore other devices and attack techniques, based on your feedback!
- Users interested in IT-security and and privacy
- Anyone who wants to extend their know-how in IT-security
- Network / IT Administrators
The Rubber Ducky is probably the most popular and known product on the market. What it actually does is to register itself as a keyboard when plugged in and to start typing a pre-defined sequence of commands (also named as a keystroke injection attack).
This section is dealing with a known vulnerability in the IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) protocol. The problem are the so called management frames that are not always authenticated, thus allowing an attacker for example to disconnect the devices from the network by sending a so-called deauthentication frame, used to terminate a connection.
We will be using an open source project, created as a proof of concept for demonstrating this WiFi vulnerability.
There are two ways to get your board up and running. You can compile the project yourself and upload it with the Arduino IDE. Because this method requires a series of steps to get it running, in this video I will show you a simpler method with the same outcome. Still if you want to go the Arduino way, I will link you the documentation.
