THE NSA PLAYSET: A YEAR OF TOYS AND TOOLS presented at BlackhatUS 2015

by Michael Ossmann,

Summary : Inspired by the contents of the leaked NSA ANT catalog, the NSA Playset project has produced an array of gadgets with capabilities similar to those employed by the spooks. I will review the entire collection since the start of the project. This includes new tools for USB, PCI Express, I2C, GSM, Bluetooth, and a family of RF retroreflectors for eavesdropping on a wide variety of electronic devices. Now you can play along with the NSA!
