Unifying RF Fuzzing Techniques under a Common API: Introducing unfAPI

Presented at TROOPERS18 (2018), March 15, 2018, 1:30 p.m. (Unknown duration)

While fuzzing is known to be a powerful mechanism for fingerprinting and enumerating bugs within hardware and software systems, the application of this technique to wireless systems remains nontrivial due to fragmented and siloed tools. Join us as we cover wireless fuzzing fundamentals and introduce a new tool to unify the approach across protocols, radios, and drivers.
