Hello workshop - Wifi hacking with a 4 dollar microcontroller

  • Location: Bob
  • Speaker: Márk Szabó
  • Date and time: 11:00 - 11:45

The ESP8266 is a wifi enabled microcontroller, which is popular among makers thanks to its low price: the base module costs ~$2 and you can get one with USB connector for $4. In this Workshop I will show you three hacks, starting with a fake captive portal. Captive portals are widely used in hotels and other public networks, where the wifi network is open, but upon connection a login page is showed to the user. We will see how to setup a fake captive portal and collect the login credentials. This exercises will show the basic capabilities of the microcontroller. Then we will see how to send raw packets, especially beacon frames. These packets are used to introduce wifi networks, so if we send them with random SSID and MAC, whenever someone scans for wifi they will see a lot of new wifi networks, but they will not be able to connect to them. We will continue with raw packets, and see how to send deauthentication packets to a client to make them drop their connection.
