Wild West Hackin’ Fest (WWHF) SDR Labs

David Fletcher//

During WWHF we had a number of attendees ask for the Software Defined Radio (SDR) lab parts list and source code so that they could experiment at home.  Unfortunately, I needed to make some modifications to the lab write up and source code based on observations made during the conference and I have had little time to do so between then and now.  I feel bad for the delay, but here they are…the WWHF SDR Labs. Each lab includes a parts list to get you up and running, the lab instructions, and the source code used in the lab itself.  Just download all three files and you’ll be on your way.

Note:  Parts identified in the parts list do not constitute endorsement, they’re just what we had…

Wireless Doorbell Attack Lab:

This lab demonstrates capture, analysis, and synthesis of a simple signal used to trigger a wireless doorbell. The objective of the lab is to demonstrate manual decode and replay to illustrate the need for replay protection.
