HITBLab: Introduction to Software-Defined Radio Hacking


DATE: 27 August 2021

TIME: 18:30 to 20:30 SGT/GMT+8


RF communications are present in major devices to exchange important data over the air, but also for our current use through our mobile phone by example. Nevertheless, as there is no wire to directly interact with such communication we need the right tools and techniques to do so.

This lab is about understanding the risks, but also the challenges when attacking radio communications. We will see together what are the prerequisites, and look shortly at some methods that may be helpful to start analyzing a communication, and talk about the expected results of different attacks.

Who Should Attend

Anyone curious about RF communication, and security

Prerequisite Knowledge

Basic knowledge of radio and security is a plus

Hardware / Software Requirements

All attendees will need a machine capable of running VMware virtual machines (8GB of RAM is a minimum)
