Wi-Fi Hacking on the ESP8266 Workshop
Learn Advanced Wi-Fi Hacking on the ESP8266 Microcontroller
Interested in learning about Wi-Fi hacking for cheap? The Wi-Fi Deauther uses the ESP8266 microcontroller and Arduino IDE to easily scan and attack Wi-Fi networks.
After over a year of continually improving the web-interface enabled Deauther V2, the new and redesigned V3 offers more features to perform advanced Wi-Fi attacks using the new built-in command-line interface.
Some of the newest features include a beginner-friendly serial terminal for controlling the Deauther from any OS, unmasking networks a device has connected to before, and more!
You’ll learn how to upgrade your ESP8266 board to the latest V3 Deauther, try out the new features, and meet the creator of the Deauther to ask questions! If you don't have an ESP8266 board, you can support the presenters and buy a pre-flashed Wemos D1 Mini ESP8266 development board (for US-based participants only), or pick up your own ESP8266 board on Amazon or Aliexpress.
What you need:
1) You will need an ESP8266 based development board, we recommend the D1 Mini.
2) A micro USB cable that supports data transfer (not just power)
3) A computer running Arduino IDE
About the hosts:
Stefan Kremser is a security researcher and computer science student from Germany, and is the creator of the ESP8266 Wi-Fi Deauther. He specializes in designing low-cost, open-source hardware hacking tools to make ethical hacking accessible to anyone interested in pursuing a career in cybersecurity. His other designs include the Wi-Fi Duck, the Wi-Fi satellite, and Arduino PCAP library.
Kody Kinzie is a security researcher at Varonis, with a background in Wi-Fi security and low-cost hacking tools. He hosts the Cyber Weapons Lab show on Null Byte's YouTube channel, a soon to be released show for Hak5, live streams twice weekly on the SecurityFWD channel, and hosts the Varonis Security Tools podcast. Aside from Wi-Fi hacking, Kody also teaches about open-source intelligence, Python programming, and Arduino-based hacking tools.
