Summary : "N/A
This talk will show attendees how they can do penetration testing with a network of small, battery-powered, penetration testing systems. The small devices discussed will be running a version of The Deck, a full-featured penetration testing and forensics Linux distro. The Deck runs on the BeagleBoard-xM, BeagleBone, and similar ARM-based systems. These devices are easily hidden and can run for days to weeks off of battery power thanks to their low power consumption. While each device running The Deck is a full-featured penetration-testing platform, connecting systems together via a mesh network allows even more power and flexibility. A complete setup consisting of a portable command station with 7-inch touchscreen, and several nodes with Wi-Fi adapters all connected with ZigBee networking can easily be constructed for fewer than 1,000 Euros. This entire setup can easily fit inside two child's lunch boxes."
