    Default Raspberry Pi + BT?

    BT5 ARM? Is the Raspberry Pi invited to the party too? (I mean, I'd expect so, but I only see smartphone threads in this section so I thought I'd ask.)

    The RasPi could be a pretty handy tool if paired with BT -- a super-customizable BT card which you could place in seemingly benign containers/locations for gathering data.
    Or, y'know, just get a bunch of them spread out over some area and get exceptional wireless coverage, command your own team of nodes, etc.

    Oh, yeah, this has to be a thread. Let's discuss any creative uses we can come up with using Raspberry Pi boards/systems and BackTrack.

    Just because you can't see something doesn't mean it isn't there.

    Short answer: No, BT can't run on Raspberry Pi without modifications.

    Long answer: RaspberryPi has an ARM11 CPU
    http://elinux.org/RaspberryPiBoard#Hardware

    which means it has the ARMv6 architecture:

    BT is compiled for Nvidia Tegra 2 which is ARMv7:
    https://secure.wikimedia.org/wikiped...Tegra_2_series

    But, if you have the source code, theoretically you could compile it yourself for the ARMv6 ISA

    You don't need RaspberryPi running BT for being useful in Penetration testing, you could install the needed tools in the distro that comes with RaspberryPi and use it that way, without senseless modifications.
    What's great about RaspberryPi is the very low power consumption (~700mAh at 5V ~=3.5W) which can be used together with of the shelf 18650 LiIons and a voltage regulator.
    RaspberryPi: US$25
    4x18650: US$9
    1xL7805: US$1
    Wifi dongle: US$7
    ---------------------------
    Total: US$42

    The perfect backdoor/dropbox which runs at least 12h off the batteries.

    18650 LiIons have 3000mAh -> 3Ax3.7V=11.1W X 4= 44.4W / 3.5W =12.6H

    I actually retardedly submitted an RPi BT thread. It was more of a geeky idea but good info erhardm. Installing the tools on a RPi ready distro makes WAY more sense than modding the compiled version of BT. But the RPi is really a blank slate for any application. Security/data collection/IDS whatever. Small, low power, and most importantly, cheap device as a network monitoring system, makes me giggle inside.

    Take a look at "pwnpi" here http://sourceforge.net/projects/pwnpi/
