Shepherd’s Pi – Herding Sheep with a Raspberry Pi - Timothy Mulligan

Most people are aware that the Raspberry Pi is a low-cost, educational Linux platform. Projects that begin on a Linux laptop or PC can be easily ported to a Pi. Ease of acquisition, affordability,and small form factor make the Pi a perfect throw-away hacking platform. This presentation demonstrates use of a Pi as a portable Man-in-the-Middle and SSL stripping attack vector. Any location offering open WiFi is potentially vulnerable to this type of attack. It is possible for an attacker to gather credentials and other personal information from WiFi sessions. Countermeasures that foil this type of attack will also be discussed.
