HITB LAB: Wireless Hacking with HackCUBE


We designed one hardware tool named ‘HackCUBE’ and wish to give its FIRST show to the public in HITB AMS.

The HackCUBE is a small sized (8.5cm^3) and battery powered SDR cube box. It integrates Raspberry Pi, Arduino, 2.4/5.8G Wifi and HID etc, and can externally be connected with some SDR hardware, such as HackRF, RTL-SDR, CC2541 etc. The whole system (without external accessories) will be equal to Unicorn HackID Plus (RFID read/write/emulator) + Wifi Pineapple + rfcat (Sub-GHz transceiver). It can provide comprehensive and powerful wireless hacking capability.

In the lab session, we will show two typical use cases:

1) Wifi hacking – We will show how to use HackCube to launch a Wifi hotspot for phishing, and how to block a malicious hotspot. Both 2.4G and 5.8G bands are supported. 5.8G blocking capability is not a common available feature in most of the hacking products.

2) Fixed-code brute force attack to parking bar – We will build a LEGO-based parking bar model as the attack target and teach the attendees how to use HackCube to realize a brute force attack (315/433MHz). A successful attack will lift the LEGO parking bar.

We will bring some HackCubes (e.g. ~10) to the lab and the attendees can operate and program it to complete the two experiments, and even can try other ideas they have.

The highlights of the HackCUBE are its portability and multi-function. As hackers, we hope to have an unnoticeable and battery powered tool to do wireless hacking so we create this cube. Wish we have this opportunity to introduce it to people.
