Harness Unused WiFi Signals for Power with Metamaterials

I recently saw this article (http://tinyurl.com/ssrwifi) from a comment iBall made on FaceBook. First, this isn’t that new. It’s been worked on for about a decade now and founded/hypothesized back in 1968. And yeah, from 1968 to about 1999 most of the work was “theoretical.” What I am talking about is a material designed to “catch” electro[magnetism]. In Physics, there is something called the “index of refraction” which is measured by how electro[magnetic] energy changes velocity in a new material. A simple example of refraction is in the case of light into glass or water. Have you ever seen a

OpenWIPS-ng, SSWR, WPA, and SAMI

Thomas d’Otreppe’s latest work on creating an open source WIPS (wireless intrusion prevention system) at DerbyCon: This is a good video, and his methods are creative, but all of which are some things I have been thinking over for about 2 years now. My first implementation of an openWIPS (which took me about a year to finally start coding it) was a simple script that ran from a “server” just like his: Then, after being interviewed by a security consultant, He gave me the idea to implement this directly in the router itself: What his [Thomas's] OpenWIPS-ng has over mine

July 14, 2011 in In the News, Information Security, Systems Administration, WiFi Hacking by trevelyn

[Source of Article] [Actual Sentencing Memo] From “Hell” ?? I just couldn’t help myself to talk about this article. This is awful. Ardolf downloaded Wi-Fi hacking software and spent two weeks cracking the Kostolnik’s WEP encryption. Seriously? 2 weeks? What did he use, wireshark and Aircrack-ng only? Kismac? LOL! A forensics computer investigator working for Kostolnik’s law firm examined the packet logs, and found the e-mail sessions sending the threats. In the data surrounding the threatening traffic, they found traffic containing Ardolf’s name and Comcast account . Yeah, so, what lesson(s) do we learn here? Don’t have your browser profile

Wardriving is not a crime

April 25, 2011 in In the News, Information Security, Uncategorized, WiFi Hacking by trevelyn

Ethics are something which cannot be forced upon someone. They just happen. They result from you as an individual, your environment, and well, anything that influences you. Media, like the news, music, sitcoms, movies, and such can all have a deep effect on the psychology that goes into ethics and what decisions you as an individual make. Imagine you walk through a bar where people are all yelling at the bartender like so: man: “RTS!?” bartender: “CTS!” man: “I would like a drink, here is my credit card number! 1234-1234-1234-1234!! Sec code: 123!! expiration: 11-12!!!” bartender: “ACK!” and this is
