Learn the in's and out's of hardware honey-pot hacking from Hak5's Darren Kitchen in this step-by-step hands-on WiFi Hacking workshop. From the basics of 802.11 frames to embedded linux driver hacking, participants will learn WiFi hacking from the ground up. Hardware and software will be provided for the necessary firmware flash and configuration Jasager - an open source WiFi penetration testing platform.

Further instruction will include advanced usage techniques such as 3G dialing, reverse SSH tunneling, covert concealment, packet sniffing and other man-in-the-middle tools. An array of WiFi "victim" devices will be on hand for your exploiting pleasure. No prior WiFi hacking expertise is necessary and hardware provided can be kept by the participant at cost with a donation benefiting Noisebridge.

BONUS: Sneak Preview Hacker Film "REBOOT"


Following the hands on workshop will be a sneak preview screening of the yet-to-be-released hacker film "REBOOT". The films producer will be on hand for Q&A following the 40 minute picture. A teaser can be found at rebootfilm.com. From the site:

Set within a dystopian world that is a collision between technology and humanity, "Reboot" touches upon many of the current social and political concerns that arise from becoming more and more intertwined with the virtual.

In contemporary Los Angeles, a young female hacker (Stat) awakens from unconsciousness to find an iPhone glued to her hand and a mysterious countdown ticking away on the display. Suffering from head trauma, and with little recollection of who she is or what is happening, Stat races against time to figure out what the code means, and what unknown event the pending zero-hour will bring.
