The Phuture of Phreaking

Presented at The Eleventh HOPE (2016), July 22, 2016, 10 a.m. (60 minutes)

Phone phreaking has always been about the exploration of the PSTN (Public Switched Telephone Network). Richard Cheshire will discuss phreaking in the age of VoIP (Voice over Internet Protocol). Downloading the Phone Loser's blue box app is not a prerequisite.
