DEFCON 20 – NFC Hacking: The Easy Way

Posted on Sunday, December 23rd, 2012 in open source, RF, software, Videos, wireless by the machinegeek

Eddie Lee, a security researcher at Blackwing Intelligence, gave this presentation at last Summer’s DEFCON 20 conference. His technique involves using NFCProxy, an open source software tool released at the conference to analyze 13.56 MHz RFID protocols and proxy transactions using Android phones. NFCProxy can view the wireless transmissions from the perspective of the tag or the PCD (proximity coupling device).

You obtain more information and download NFCProxy from the project’s Sourceforge page.
