Autonomous Remote Hacking Drones (requirements) presented at BruCon 2014

by Philip Polstra,

Summary : This workshop will walk attendees through the process of creating their own remote hacking drones. Participants will start by loading The Deck, a special pentesting Linux distro based on Ubuntu 14.04, onto microSD cards to be used on a BeagleBone Black computing board. From there the systems will be configured to perform attacks. Then Xbee/Zigbee network adapters will be added along with software to permit the BeagleBone hacking drones to be operated remotely (distances of up to 1.6 km). Several ideas on how to automate attacks with these drones using Python will be presented. As time permits advanced topics such as embedding drones into other objects and RC aircraft will be discussed.
