    Inspecting Signals from Satellites to Shock Collars
    Trenton Ivey & Eric Escobar

    Prerequisites for students?:
    Students are expected to have basic familiarity with the Linux command line.

    Materials or Equipment students will need to bring to participate?:
    Students will need to bring a wifi-enabled laptop with a modern browser.

    What level of skill is required for your targeted audience (Beginner/Intermediate/Advanced)?:
    While beginner students will be able to participate, this workshop is targeted at intermediate-level students.

    Invisible signals control everything from satellites to shock collars. Wireless security can be intimidating, especially when research requires a low-level understanding of the many ways radio waves can carry data. The concept of using light to send messages is not hard to grasp, but the several abstraction layers between physical radio waves and decoded data packets obscure what is really happening when wireless devices communicate. By examining several topics that are rarely presented together, this workshop provides the introduction to wireless hacking that we both wish we had when starting out. If you want the ability to see and manipulate the unseen, this workshop is for you.
