In this course we will have a look at a couple of hardware gadgets which can be used for hacking. USB Hacking I will present you how a keystroke injection attack works and present USB sticks like USB Rubber Ducky and while show you how to write your own scripts to exploit this vulnerability. In a series of lecture I will show you how you can build a lower-cost version of the USB Rubber Ducky by using cheap Chinese made development boards which are compatible with the Arduino platform. After you understand how the attack works and are able to build your own device, I will explain what options are available in order to protect yourself. WiFi jamming WiFi Jammers or to call them more properly WiFi deauthers, are basically a very easy way of kicking everybody out from a specific Wi-Fi network and if wanted, making the Wi-Fi network useless. This section is dealing with a known vulnerability in the IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) protocol even with WPA2. While the data you are transferring by the Wi-Fi network is encrypted and better protected, the problem are the so called management frames that are not always authenticated, thus allowing an attacker for example to disconnect the devices from the network by sending a so-called deauthentication frame, used to terminate a connection.
