Just wanted to let you know that I’ll doing a webcast with the fine folks at Black Hills InfoSec next Thursday. I’ll be talking about a frequency hopping SDR system I built using Python and the gnuradio API. It was intended as a proof-of-concept RF exfiltration system, but you could use the framework for any number of things.
The host transmits requests for data downstream to the exfil device, along with the frequency at which the information should be sent back. The concept is fairly straightforward, but it’s not always clear how build these types of systems with gnuradio. Specifically, there are a number of complications to getting payload data out of gnuradio flowgraphs and into Python code where you can act on that data. I’ll show you how I did this, as well as some best practices for building code-only gnuradio systems (i.e. without using the gnuradio-companion GUI).
The webcast will be next Thursday (11-Apr) at 2pm EST aka 11am PDT. You can register here.
