The next OWASP CPT meeting will feature a talk by Mike Davis titled:
"Hunting rogue WiFi devices using the HackRF SDR"

Rogue WiFi Access Points are a serious security risk for today's connected society. Devices such as the Hak5 Pineapple, ESP8266-based 'throwies', or someone with the right WiFi card and software can be used to intercept users' traffic and grab all of their credentials. Finding these rogue devices is a very difficult thing to achieve without specialised equipment. In this talk Mike will discuss the work he has been doing over the past year, to use the HackRF SDR as a RF Direction-finding device, with the goal of hunting down various malicious RF devices, including car remote jammers.

Mike Davis (@elasticninja) is passionate about software defined radio and is currently pursuing his MSc in Information Security.
