DefCon 22 – Practical Aerial Hacking & Surveillance

Reading time ~1 min

Hello from Las Vegas! Yesterday (ed: uh, last week, my bad) I gave a talk at DefCon 22 entitled ‘Practical Aerial Hacking & Surveillance‘. If you missed the talk the slides are available here. Also, I’m releasing a paper I wrote as part of the talk entitled ‘Digital Terrestrial Tracking: The Future of Surveillance‘, click here to download it.

Whiskey shot! Whiskey shot!

The Snoopy code is available on our GitHub account, and you can join the mailing list here. Also, congratulations to @AmandersLPD for winning our #SnoopySensor competition! You can see the output of our *amazing* PRNG in action below: defConWinrar I’ll update this post to point to the DefCon video once they’re released. In the meantime, the specifications of my custom quadcopter I had on stage are below:
