    Default Networking project

    Hello, I am curently taking a networking class and am trying to come up with a good networking project. I have cracked wep and wpa a million times using BT3 so I don't think that would be all that interesting. However I am thinking of doing somthing with bluetooth. Here are the 2 I deas I currently have and here is my question.
    Idea 1: write a driver that will comunicate with a wiimote in Linux
    (I know ..not BackTrack related)

    Idea 2: Do somthing with "Car Whisperer"
    Would This be a very expencive school project Dongle, Antenna, and Hands free car kit? or would I beable to pick up most of what I need Hardware wise fairly cheap on ebay? Also If I do decide to do this does anyone know what Model hands free car blue tooth kits and vulnerable to this type of attack and if I can aquire one cheaply on ebay?

    Thanks

    The dongle could be had for less than $60. If you get a Class I Bluetooth device, you don't need to use an antenna, especially if you're not using it in anything besides a demo. A Class I devices will transmit ~100m, using the built-in antenna that comes with the device. The Linksys BT100 is a Class I device and can be found for ~$50-$60 USD.

    Check the Trifinite.org site.

    You do understand that the device is built into the car, right? The device is free, but the car will cost you $25000.

    Default bluetooth

    I thought I could bye an aftermarket device that did not come with the car that would also be vulnerable like the built in ones. I was under the impression they had kits to equip cars that do not have the hands free device from the factory? If it is true that I cant just get some aftermarket kit and must have a car with it in it already I think I am out of luck and better find another project.

    There might be some aftermarket device that is vulnerable, but my recollection was that the original project was aimed at built-in devices like the one that came with the Toyota Prius, which was wide open. You'd have to research it to find an aftermaket device. My suggestion would be to check the Trifinite.org site, and see what they said in detail. You might also be willing to find a friend who owns a vulnerable vehicle, and use it for your class project.

    Default thanks

    Thanks,
    Yeah I know that the lexus one also was wide open (same device). Basically I was just thinking of the aftermarket one for atainability and portability, and basically say this is what happens and it also can happen to the built in devices as well.

    I will do some research tonight. Otherwise I will either do my wiimote idea or maby some sort of packet capture / analyzing program.

    Fair enough

    Although sometimes Linux suffers from too many people trying to reinvent the same old wheel.
    It's always more beneficial to everyone to try to work on something that isn't already covered by its own community of developers - or at least make sure that you contribute any improvements back into the existing development community

    Why don't you try to develop something for the BackTrack community!?
