  1. Sniffing Cordless Phone

    Hi ASD, probably a bit a late but it looks like we're looking into the same stuff. As stated by the other repliers I'm doing this with a HackRF. Feel free to join in on
  2. DECT & HackRF

    Yet another step closer: On IRC I received two links on the #SDR channel: Cyberspectrum: Bay Area Software Defined Radio #7 (May 2015): https://youtu.be/BoFOt9AUWuE Cyberspectrum: Bay Area Software Defined Radio #9 (July 2015): https://youtu.be/NBfBnPPcuJw And they also pointed me towards RFtap (https://rftap.github.io/). Looking into this now. The docs indicate that Wireshark 2.3 and above have buildin support for this so I'm going to try that route.
  3. UK Interest

    Depends on what you look for I think. I suppose you mean anything audio related? In that case there are always plenty of babymonitors, intercoms, walkies, DECT-phones, ... Have a look here: http://static.ofcom.org.uk/static/spectrum/fat.html. This is a link to the UK Frequency Allocation Table, which is regulated by Ofcom, the UK's communications regulator. In this table you'll find all the possible frequencies that are out there on the radio spectrum, and it will state what the frequency is used for. A good place to start is in the SMI-band for Scientific, Medical and Industrial applications. Also fun to take a look at: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Citizens_band_radio (CB radio)
  4. DECT & HackRF

    alright, got that one working. Didn't know about SWIG before. It appears that this is some sort of linking library between C++ and Python. It appeared that have that installed but it was of the wrong version. I could verify this by doing over the build process. In the log of the build I could see the error: So, to fix this I did Then, I rebuild and the stuff worked. Now it's time to figure out how to use this thing...
  5. DECT & HackRF

    Another update: Just_a_User gave me a hint on the #sdr-channel and pointed me to https://github.com/pavelyazev/gr-dect2 Now, I build and installed it and opened the example GRC-flow and replaced the USRP source with an OSMOCOM source to use my HackRF. But now if I run it, the thing stumples upon following error: My GRC flow looks like this:
  6. DECT & HackRF

    Ok, seems that there is an old project 'Dedected' (https://dedected.org) on which there was a talk on 25C3 (2008) (https://dedected.org/trac/wiki/25C3) but unfortunately, one of the researchers wasn't able to explain his findings in English so I didn't manage to follow that. Since then there seems to be an update on the project, well more of a fork under the name 'Re-dected' that has been uploaded on github: https://github.com/znuh/re-DECTed I'm still figuring out how to get this last one working and wrapping my head around how dect exactly works, but we're moving forward.
  7. DECT & HackRF

    Hi, Starting of on a new project again, I'd be interested to learn more about analysing DECT communication through a HackRF. Is there any specific research that you think I should read up on? I've done my first steps with the hackrf: hacking the garagedoor, listening in on the babymonitor, ... now I'd like to start learning about DECT phones, but I'm 100% new to the subject.
  8. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    Thanks but I just finished setting it up on v3 as I wanted it for my project so I'm going to stay on v3 for now. I don't think the fix you suggest would actually solve the connection problem after having upgraded to v4.
  9. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    I just installed all of them, so not really sure which one it was. But the trouble didn't start when having those modules installed. It started when having upgraded to v4. I undid it by downloading v3 and downgrading again. So I currently run v3 without any problems. I think the behavior can be reconstructed by just upgrading a clean device to v4.

  11. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    Yes, first get ur bellies filled with turkey and other goodness! Priorities people! Priorities :-)
  12. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    So something is definitely off with the latest version. Anyone from the developers around that could have a clue about what's causing this?
  13. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    Yes, that worked. Downgrading back to version 3 did the trick. Now, I assume that there is good reason to have v4, otherwise it probably wouldn't exist, so maybe it would be interesting to research this a bit further to know what went wrong with v4.
  14. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    Going to try another approach: going to assume that the version that I had initially was version 3, so downloaded that again and I am doing a manual downgrade now. Hopefully this will work. Will post update afterwards.
  15. LAN Turtle 3g: no modules anymore since last update

    Hi, I got to play with my Turtle for the first time 2 days ago. Worked pretty fine and I could follow the primer video's that Daren has on youtube. I got to the point where I had a working SSH-relay over a cloud-hosted C2-server that I setup for this experiment. Now, as Daren recommends in his videos, I went for an update of the firmware. Nothing wrong, the thing was connected to the internet via the ethernet-port so it went like a breeze. After about 15min or so I could login again with the default pass, but when I now try to install any modules it says it can't find any. When I try to get another system update it says it's offline while if I go to shell and view the ifconfig output it does show that I have an IP from my local LAN. Already did some digging and found already one fix: after the 'offline' message when I went for a system update check, I went into the shell to check if I had internet. A simple wget google.com indicated that I didn't. Unplugged it and plugged it in again, nothing. So I went back to the turtle shell, and figured that the thing maybe is trying to make a WAN connection over the 3g modem, which would not work ofcourse because I don't have a SIM in it yet. So, I noticed that the 3g configs had a setting to do a 'fallback to wan', so I enabled that and set the fallback timer from the default 200 to 5. Not entirely sure if this is correct but I figured that this setting means that by default the turtle would look for an internet-connection on the 3g modem first and if it didn't get a connection on that after 200sec it would fallback to the ethernet-port. This actually fixed the internet-connection issue indeed, after making these fallback settings I could succesfully wget google.com. So I thought "hey I got internet, so let's try to get these modules back to work", but still no luck. When I try to install a system update from the Turtle shell it doesn't complain about offline connection or so, it just says 'no updates found', same for when I try to install modules. I have already tried getting the latest firmware (version 4) and flash the Turtle with this but this didn't change anything. Again: all this trouble started after I upgraded. When I received my Turtle it just worked out of the box with the installed firmware, but it got fubar since I upgraded. Any help? Suggestions? I noticed a few other posts concerning the same issue but these date from 2yrs ago and since I'm guessing this has something to do with the most recent update I installed I figured it would probably be better to create a new thread on the topic.
