Summary : There are many other wireless devices besides Wifi and Bluetooth. This talk examines the security of some of these devices, including wireless keyboards, mice, and presenters. Many of these devices are designed to be as cost effective as possible. These cost reductions directly impact their security. Examples of chip level sniffing will be shown as well as chip level injection attacks allowing an attacker to control the target system. The hardware used in these devices will be examined along with an attacker toolkit consisting of low cost hardware and software.
