Training with Raspberry Pi presented at BSidesDC 2014

Summary : One of the biggest questions facing people trying to learn how to hack is “How do you practice without committing a crime?” Wi-Fi is one of the easiest things to break, but it still requires practice to be proficient. To practice, you can either go after a random Wi-Fi network or you can create your own target network. Using an old router is fine, but the passcode has to be changed manually. What if you turned a Raspberry Pi into a hackable target that changes the Wi-Fi key every time it boots? Using Hostapd, some custom code and a Wi-Fi dongle that supports master mode, a new training platform was created.
