Inside The Atheros WiFi Chipset - Adrian Chadd (Defcon Wireless Village 2014) (Hacking Illustrated Series InfoSec Tutorial Videos)

Inside The Atheros WiFi Chipset - Adrian Chadd

The Qualcomm Atheros wireless chips have a variety of open source drivers available. Adrian will walk through the open Atheros HALs and ath9k-htc firmware, describing how things hold together and how to use them. Note - everything discussed will be based on what is the open source software and publicly available information.

Bio: Adrian is the FreeBSD wireless maintainer and worked at Atheros for 18 months on chip bring-up and open source work. He worked with other Atheros developers to open source the USB firmware for the AR5513 and ath9k-htc hardware, as well as the AR9300 HAL. He also works on network parallelism and scaling in FreeBSD. His day job isn't anything to do with wifi.
