Tim Fowler
ShowMeCon 2015

Have you ever put a wireless card in monitor mode just to look at the airwaves around you? Did you get a lot of data? The amount of data that traverses the airwaves every day is staggering. From smartphones, laptops, tablets and even the cars we drive, it seems that everything isbroadcasting some sort of data. We just need a way to capture all of that data and turn that data into something useful. This talk will walk through the history and process of building the Harbinger Sensor Network and how you can build your very own for almost any budget. Just getting the data is only half the battle, now you must do something with it. Finally this presentation looks at how someone can leverage the data collected from a single sensor to 10,000 or more sensors deployed all over world for good?evil and a few things in between.
