In this talk from the DeepSec 2011 security conference Laurent ‘Kabel’ Weber, co-founder of the Chaos Computer Club in Berlin, details the enhanced scapy software tool to attack GSM via packet manipulation. This presentation introduces a scapy-addon allowing users to create GSM layer 3 packets using simple Python syntax. His hardware setup includes a USRP1 with RFX900 daughterboard, with clock generation via a Clocktamer. He sends messages to mobile GSM devices using openBTS.
