RF Retroreflectors, Emission Security and SDR presented at Troopers 2015

by Michael Ossmann,

Summary : The leaked pages from the NSA ANT catalog provided a glimpse into the modern world of emission security. Extending beyond passive monitoring of unintentional emissions, today’s spooks employ active attacks with tools such as RF retroreflectors. I’ll report on my experiments to reproduce such techniques with open source hardware and software, primarily using SDR.
