ApiMote v4beta Released: A IEEE 802.15.4 Sniffing/Injection Interface

We have announced the ApiMote v4beta design and released it as open-source hardware at the TROOPERS14 security conference. This hardware was designed specifically with security researchers and assessors in mind, and is supported by the KillerBee software toolkit and GoodFET. We believe it offers unique capabilities unfulfilled by other interfaces currently available. If you want to use this board, you can build it based on the open-source design files or obtain a pre-built, tested, and programmed one from us.

IEEE 802.15.4/ZigBee Wireless IDS Beta Released

We have released BeeKeeper Wireless Intrusion Detection System (WIDS), an open-source IEEE 802.15.4 Wireless IDS at the TROOPERS14 security conference. This beta version demonstrates a strong framework for multiple sensors and a centralized analytic engine. A few simple detection scripts are included to demonstrate detecting common attacks. You can read about it on our projects page or review our presentation. The source code is available and we encourage anyone interested to submit updates to it.
