Hackers in the Wire and Drones Oh My! presented at 44con 2015

by Philip Polstra,

Summary : At the second 44CON Phil debuted The Deck, a penetration testing Linux distro for the BeagleBoard, BeagleBone, BeagleBone Black, and similar small computing devices. In this talk you will learn how to perform very powerful, yet inexpensive, penetration tests with an army of low-power ARM-based devices connected via a wireless, out-of-band, network. These devices range from wired/wireless dropboxes, to wired/wireless remote hacking drones, to flying remote hacking drones, to taps installed inline in the target's data center. All of the action can be controlled from up to a mile away (Phil recommends poolside at a nearby hotel) or from anywhere in the world using gateways.
Devices to be discussed include the BeagleBone Black, BeagleBoard xM, BeagleBoard X15, the Little Universal Network Appliance (LUNA), the Raspberry Pi 2, and aerial delivery platforms.
