Software Defined Radios: Hacking the Invisible


In our everyday life we are accustomed to use radio communication devices: car key fobs, remote controls, toys etc. Unfortunately these devices are often designed without security in mind, and this is true also for radio communication protocols spread all over the world and often mandatory. In this talk we will get a chance to see how SDRs work and what are the tools they lay out to enthusiasts who are willing to play around a little bit and break things apart to understand how they work. There will be also some live demo with SDRs in place.
