RTL-SDR and Backtrack5 R2

Posted on Wednesday, May 30th, 2012 in Linux, SDR, security by the machinegeek


Inspired by the securestate article “All Your 900 MHz Are Belong to Us”, the hack4fun crew wondered about the potential for using the RTL-SDR dongle with Backtrack5 Linux distro. They were able to easily install the drivers and related software to use the RTL-SDR with GNU Radio and GNU Radio-companion and have written this article providing a detailed how-to. Now you can combine these two outstanding capabilities in one integrated pen-testing package.
