WarBallooning at Defcon

[rocketman] has posted about a new event at Defcon dubbed WarBallooning. They are using a Kismet drone (a modified WRT54G), a webcam, and a few high gain antennas. The balloon will be launched at about 15 stories and will be remotely fed targets chosen directly by the Defcon participants. The the directional antenna will be mounted to the camera so pan and tilt can be controlled. The Kismet CSV files will be available for everyone after the event.

If you are interested in WarDriving or building you own high-gain antennas, we suggest you check out this WiFi biquad dish antenna mounted on a car. If cars are too boring, or you do not have one, you could always go WarSailing or WarFlying. Yes, the permutations are endless.

    Don’t forget warriding and warwalking. Both of which that drone gets more time to scan for aps, usually getting a much higher AP count than wardriving.

    Actually, the term we used for that here was WarBiking.

    Ahh the days without a car. Must’ve been weird seeing some kids ride past on a bike with beeping coming out of a laptop ;)
