Wireless security researchers have an unprecedented array of tools at their disposal today. Although Software Defined Radio (SDR) is the single most valuable tool for reverse engineering wireless signals, it is sometimes faster and easier to use other tools for portions of the reverse engineering process. I'll discuss how beneficial a hybrid SDR/non-SDR approach has been to security researchers, and I'll walk through an example of the process.
Michael Ossmann is a wireless security researcher who makes hardware for hackers. He founded Great Scott Gadgets in an effort to put exciting, new tools into the hands of innovative people.
