Intro to the Hackers lab
A new series about hacker hardware coming to a computer near you!
Hello there 0x00sec! I'm going to be starting a new series based off of my EDC bag post and a suggestion from @ricksanchez that I should do something like this.
To start things off, I'll be discussing the Raspberry Pi. It's something that I feel every self-labeled hacker should own and use frequently.
What is a Raspberry Pi!?
First of all, it's certainly not something you eat...
A raspberry pi (henceforth known as Rpi) is a "credit-card-sized mini-computer that plugs into your T.V. and keyboard." In other words, it's a computer you can fit in the palm of your hand and in your pocket or even hide somewhere within a target building (more on that later).
Okay cool, but what can I do with it?
Well, nearly anything that a full sized computer can do!
You can turn it into an emulator platform for your favorite retro games, you can build an Rpi Laptop, media server, or your very own mesh net.
Geared more toward our mentality however, you can use it to create a pentesting drop-box with pwnpi or kali linux ARM. This is what we will be focusing on today.
A pentesting drop-box? HOW?!
Well, essentially, you just do some hardware mods, install kali (or pwnpi) on it, drop it in a hidden location, (might I suggest a Pringles can wrapped in matte-black tape?) connect to it via NetCat or SSH and hack away.
That's all for today folks. I'll leave you a few things to think on...
This can be lifted by a drone. Any ideas on this one?
It's portable and can fit in your pocket while it's on.
What other things do you think this could be used for in a hacker environment?
