Active Directory Backdoors: Myth or Reality BTA: Open-Source Tool for AD Analysis

presented by

Joffrey Czarny

When it comes to the security of the information system, Active Directory domain controllers are, or should be, at the center of concerns, which are (normally) to ensure compliance with best practices, and during a compromise proved to explore the possibility of cleaning the information system without having to rebuild Active Directory. However, few tools implement this process and several ways exist to backdoor Active Directory. We propose to present some possible backdoors which could be set by an intruder in Active Directory to keep administration rights. For example, how to modify the AdminSDHolder container in order to reapply rights after administrator actions. Moreover, backdoors can be implemented in Active Directory to help an intruder to gain back his privileges. Then, we will present BTA, an audit tool for Active Directory databases, and our methodology for verifying the application of good practices and the absence of malicious changes in these databases.

The presentation will be organized as follows:

– We begin by describing the stakes around the Active Directory, centerpiece of any information system based on Microsoft technologies.
– We will continue by demonstrating some backdoors in order to keep admins rights or to help an intruder to quickly recover admins rights.
– We will present BTA and the methodology developed to analysis Active Directory.

We conclude with a feedback on real world usage of BTA.

Backdoor Factory (BDF) and BDFProxy

presented by

Joshua Pitts

The Backdoor Factory (BDF), first released in 2013, is an open source framework for patching PE, ELF, and Mach-O binaries with payloads or shellcode. Combine that with BDFProxy, a tool based on mitmProxy and BDF to MitM patch binaries during download over HTTP, pentesters can bring unique attack capabilities to red teaming engagements and other testing engagements. BDF/BDFProxy is included in multiple operating systems and frameworks including Kali-Linux, Veil-Evasion, BlackArch Linux, and MITMf.

The presenter will demo multiple use cases, from red teaming, testing OS security, cover framework internals, writing custom scripts, and new features.

Scott Johnson

Burp-hash is a Burp Suite plugin. Many applications will hash parameters, such as ID numbers and email addresses for use in secure tokens, like session cookies. The plugin will passively scan requests looking for hashed values. Once a hashed value is found, it is compared to a table of parameters already observed in the application to find a match. The plugin keeps a lookout for parameters, such as usernames, email addresses, and ID numbers. It also keeps a lookout for hashes (SHA, MD5, etc). It hashes new data and compares to observed hashes. The user receives a notification if any hashes match. This automates the process of trying to guess common parameters used in the generation of hashes observed in an application.

CapTipper is a python tool to analyze, explore, and revive HTTP malicious traffic. CapTipper sets up a web server that acts exactly as the server in the PCAP file and contains internal tools, with a powerful interactive console, for analysis and inspection of the hosts, objects, and conversations found.

The tool provides the security researcher with easy access to the files and the understanding of the network flow, and is useful when trying to research exploits, pre-conditions, versions, obfuscations, plugins, and shellcodes.

Feeding CapTipper with a drive-by traffic capture (e.g. of an exploit kit) displays the user with the REQUEST_URI’s that were sent and metadata responses. The user can at this point browse to[URI] and receive the response back to the browser. In addition, an interactive shell is launched for deeper investigation using various commands such as hosts, hexdump, info, ungzip, body, client, dump, and more.

Side channel power analysis and glitching attacks have almost mythical powers – the ability to crack cryptographic implementations by exploiting fundamental flaws in the hardware running those otherwise secure algorithms. The ChipWhisperer project aims to teach everyone from computer science students to in-the-trenches embedded engineers how the attacks work, and how to perform them on real devices.

This completely open-source project is a combination of hardware and software – the hardware can be built by a seasoned hardware hacker with surface mount experience, or a less seasoned hardware hacker can buy commercially for under $250.

The project is complete with extensive documentation and tutorials to help teach the user about the general principles of side-channel analysis and glitching attacks. ChipWhisperer was previously a finalist in the 2014 Hackaday Prize, where it placed 2nd out of around 800 entries.

CTF Tools

presented by

Yan Shoshitaishvili

There are a lot of tools written for security research and CTFs, but fairly few gain enough traction to be packaged and distributed by the likes of Ubuntu, or even Kali. Worse, when they *are* packaged, the packaged versions are often hopelessly outdated. This is unfortunate, and causes most researchers to have to spend time tracking down, compiling, configuring, and installing these tools. Also, when a computer has to be reinstalled the process generally has to be done again.

There is a need for a central repository of such tools to track them and allow security researchers to easily install them (without screwing up the whole host system!). This is the story of such a repository.

I’ve gone through the list of tools I’ve used in CTFs and in my research I have found the ones that are not adequately packaged, and created a central place for install scripts. The build system works with simple shell scripts (for easier contribution of packages) and installs everything under ~/tools (or, really, any other directory), without any global system changes (except for apt-getting dependencies from official repositories).

As far as I can tell, this is the first repository of obscure security research tools, and I think it’ll be a useful thing for the community at large.

CuckooDroid – An Automated Malware Analysis Framework

presented by

Idan Revivo

To combat the growing problem of Android malware, we present a new solution based on the popular open source framework Cuckoo Sandbox to automate the malware investigation process. Our extension enables the use of Cuckoo’s features to analyze Android malware and provides new functionality for dynamic and static analysis. Our framework is an all in one solution for malware analysis on Android. It is extensible and modular, allowing the use of new, as well as existing, tools for custom analysis.

The main capabilities of our CuckooDroid include:
– Dynamic Analysis – based on Dalvik API hooking
– Static Analysis – Integration with Androguard
– Emulator Detection Prevention
– Virtualization Managers that support the popular virtualization solutions (VMware,Virtualbox, Esxi, Xen, and Kvm) and now also android emulator.
– Traffic Analysis
– Intelligence Gathering – Collecting information from Virustotal, Google Play etc.
– Behavioral Signatures

Examples of well-known malware will be used to demonstrate the framework capabilities and its usefulness in malware analysis.

David Oren

CuckooSploit is an environment for comprehensive, automated analysis of web-based exploits, based on Cuckoo sandbox.

The framework accepts URL or a PCAP file, and works at three levels:
Exploitation Process – Detecting the core components of the exploitation process (ROP chains, shellcodes, heap sprays, etc) for when exploitation takes place but fails to launch payload for several reasons, along with immediate successful post-exploitation phenomena (e.g process creation).
Full Flow Emulation – Implementing the approach of full web emulation, rather than emulation of a single file at a time, since many exploits served by Exploit Kits do not work out of the web-page context (require configurations and/or arguments).
Web Flow Detection Redirection sequence chains, JavaScript obfuscations, evasion techniques.
By using full web emulation on different combinations of OS/browser/plugin version, CuckooSploit increases the rate of malicious URL detection and presents a reliable verdict and, in some cases, CVE identification.

Digital Disease Tracking Tool

presented by

Efrain Ortiz

Today’s digital ecosystem is harboring digital diseases that are increasingly resistant to antiviral measures. Many information security professionals continue to address the malware (digital disease pathogen) threat by focusing on antiviral methods and the re-imaging of infected hosts. The prevalence of infection is not conducive to the old reactive vaccination paradigm of one antidote signature for all. Can we learn from epidemiologists and how they investigate biological diseases? How do we enable more people to help in this digital medical crisis? We know there aren’t enough people working on the digital disease problem, so how do we increase the numbers? This Digital Disease Control Web-Based Tracking app is an alpha proof of concept visualization tool, inspired by epidemiology, to enable entry level technicians to enter the security field.

ElastAlert is a simple framework for alerting on anomalies, spikes, or other patterns of interest from data in Elasticsearch. It works by combining Elasticsearch with two types of modular components, rule types and alerts. Elasticsearch is periodically queried and the data is passed to the rule type, which determines when a match is found. When a match occurs, it is given to one or more alerts, which take action based on the match.

Exploit Pack

presented by

Juan Sacco

Since collaborative pentesting is more common each day and teams become larger, sharing the information between pentesters can become a difficult task. Different tools, different formats, long outputs (in the case of having to audit a large network) can make it almost impossible. You may end up with wasted efforts, duplicated tasks, a lot of text files scrambled in your working directory. And then, you need to collect that same information from your teammates and write a report for your client, trying to be as clear as possible.

The idea behind Faraday is to help you to share all the information that is generated during the pentest, without changing the way you work. You run a command, or import a report, and Faraday will normalize the results and share that with the rest of the team in real time. Faraday has more than 40 plugins available (and counting), including a lot of common tools. And if you use a tool for which Faraday doesn’t have a plugin, you can create your own.

During this presentation we’re going to show you the latest version of the tool, and how it can be used to improve the effectiveness of your team during a penetration test.

FindSecurityBugs is a plugin for the Java static analysis tool FindBugs. This plugin consists of set rules that focus only on security weaknesses. It can be use by developers or security analysts to find vulnerabilities in their code.

The plugin can identify weaknesses in Java web applications, Scala web applications and Android mobile applications. The assessment can be done in an IDE, such as Eclipse, or IntelliJ. It can also be configured in continuous integration environment, such as SonarQube.

The demonstrations at BH Arsenal will focus on the integration in IntelliJ and SonarQube. Example of vulnerable applications will be scanned and basic code review methodology will be presented.

FindSecurityBugs has already received some attention from the security community. It is integrated in the SWAMP code review service funded by the DHS. The OWASP Top 10 describe the tool as “the most promising” from the open source alternatives. It is used in the academia for security laboratories and the commercial sector. Finally, it was used with success in the code review of the Norwegian Voting System in 2013.

The tool is released under LGPL and it is available for download at

Have you ever wanted to inject code into a Linux process, but found yourself lacking an easy way to do it? Ever wished Linux had a system call, like CreateRemoteThread on Windows? Linux-Inject is the tool you were wishing for! It can load a shared object inside another process, in much the same way Windows lets you load DLLs in other processes. It does this by attaching to the target process with ptrace and overwriting part of its address space with a custom loader. Once the target process has executed the loader, Linux-Inject restores the target’s overwritten memory and register state and sends it on its merry way. At that point, it’s up to you to wreak whatever havoc you’d like within the target process via the newly loaded shared object. Linux-Inject supports x86, x86_64, and ARM.

Most of us have performed some level of system hardening, using checklists or custom scripts. The next level is to keep the security defenses of your systems compliant with your baselines. Lynis is an open source tool to help you with this goal. It is portable, flexible and specialized on Linux/Unix based systems. It performs an in-depth health check of your systems and tells you what additional steps you can take to lock them down. In this demo, we will see how easy it is to use, yet flexible enough to support much more than initially is visible.

Mana Toolkit is a Wi-Fi rogue access point toolkit whose purpose is getting as many clients connected, and getting as many credentials from their connections. It was first presented at Defcon 22 last year ( It started as an attempt to get KARMA attacks working again, but ended up going much further. We will be extending it even further for Arsenal.

It implements several patches to hostapd that:
– Implement our improved KARMA attacks
– Implement EAP credential interception (freeradius-wpe style, but built in)
– Auto crack ‘n add, where EAP credentials are cracked automatically to get the client to connect to a fake network with EAP

Additionally, it includes several configurations and scripts to gather credentials:
– Firelamb – Our reimplementation of firesheep in python to grab cookies
– Sslstrip-hsts – Leonardo NVE’s HSTS bypass implementation
– Certificate side loading – To attempt to load malicious certificates to better intercept SSL connections
– Captive portal social engineering – Attempts to gather creds with fake captive portal, or google pages
– Fake-internet – To fool various devices into thinking they are online

For Arsenal, we’ll be improving the EAP functionality quite significantly, and adding the ability to target specific devices, as well as several bug fixes.

Noriben is an open-source system monitoring tool that allows for quick and simplified tracking of malware activity. By wrapping its operation around Microsoft SysInternals Process Monitor, Noriben uses a comprehensive set of filters to generate very succinct reports that provide the required indicators to create Indicators of Compromise (IoC) alerts.

– Windows-based system with SysInternals Procmon.exe
– Python 2.7.9 or 3.x.
– Optional Python Requests and a VirusTotal public API key for VT lookups
– Optional Python lib-yara for automated Yara scanning

Noriben takes large volumes of system activity and filters out the background noise of system activity and legitimate operations. By focusing solely on important API calls, for file creation, registry operations, and network connections, Noriben creates a simple and straightforward report that features only the indicators that a security analyst or malware analyst cares about. Along with collecting indicators, Noriben will process all created or modified files through a collection of provided Yara signatures and detail any results. It will also submit any file hash to VirusTotal to collect its virus score.

As Noriben runs in the background during live operation, it is also suitable to acquire activity while malware is being actively debugged by an analyst. This allows for the collection of artifacts not found during normal operation in standard sandboxes.

Within 60 seconds an analyst can get a good handle on a malware’s capability and determine if it’s a new variant of a known family or something completely new and requiring reverse engineering. Noriben is currently in sophomore stages of development and is deployed in a number of malware analysis labs, including those run by federal law enforcement agencies and defense contractors, relying on its output simplicity to help analysts create actionable intelligence.

Objective-See’s OS X Security Tools

presented by

Patrick Wardle

Patrick drank the Apple juice; to say he loves his Mac is an understatement. However, he is bothered by the increasing prevalence of OS X malware and how both Apple & 3rd-party security tools can be easily bypassed. Instead of just complaining about this fact, he decided to do something about it. To help secure his personal computer he’s written various OS X security tools that he now shares online (always free!), via his personal website So come watch as KnockKnock generically detects persistent OS X malware, DHS reveals hijacked applications, and BlockBlock provides runtime protection of persistence locations. Our Macs will remain secure!

Indicator of Compromise (IOC) is a piece of information that can be used to search for or identify potentially compromised systems. Forensic investigators can define and share IOC files according to some standards or rules such as OpenIOC and YARA. Currently, many IOCs are available on the Internet, but most of the IOCs cannot be used for memory forensics because they are composed of indicators dependent on disk or live response data.

Two years ago, I introduced “volatile IOCs” based on RAM evidence only at SANS DFIR Summit 2013. We can detect malware in memory images using them faster than using disk-based traditional IOCs. Besides, we can define indicators based on not only metadata like file paths but also malware functions such as code injection sign, imported functions, unpacked codes, and so on. However, in order to scan threats using volatile IOCs, we needed to use a closed-source tool based on OpenIOC standard. I could not improve it even if there were some limitations in the tool.

That’s why I implemented “openioc_scan” as a plugin for Volatility Framework which is an open-source memory forensic tool. In this demonstration, I explain how to use it and details of the implementation. Furthermore, I also show the results of considerations about IOCs to detect unknown malware in RAM by focusing on generic traits of malware.

We use Macs a lot at Yelp, which means that we see our fair share of Mac-specific security alerts. Host based detectors will tell us about known malware infestations or weird new startup items. Network based detectors see potential C2 callouts or DNS requests to resolve suspicious domains. Sometimes our awesome employees just let us know, “I think I have like Stuxnet or conficker or something on my laptop.” When alerts fire, our incident response team’s first goal is to “stop the bleeding” to contain and then eradicate the threat. Next, we move to “root cause the alert” figuring out exactly what happened and how we’ll prevent it in the future. One of our primary tools for root causing OS X alerts is OSXCollector. OSXCollector is an open source forensic evidence collection and analysis toolkit for OS X. It was developed in-house at Yelp to automate the digital forensics and incident response (DFIR) our crack team of responders had been doing manually.

Pestudio is a unique tool that allows you to perform an initial assessment of a malware without even infecting a lab system or studying its code.

Malicious executable often attempts to hide its malicious behavior and to evade detection. In doing so, it generally presents anomalies and suspicious patterns. The goal of Pestudio is to detect these anomalies, provide Indicators and score the Trust for the executable being analyzed. Since the executable file being analyzed is never started, you can inspect any unknown or malicious executable with no risk.

Pestudio has been in the top 10 list of “Best Security Tool” in 2013 and 2014 by the readers of

Rudra – The Destroyer of Evil

presented by

Ankur Tyagi

Rudra provides a framework for automated inspection of network capture files. It extends upon another tool called flow inspect and adds subsequent file-format aware analytics to its feature set. It consumes network capture files as input and passes them through a file type-specific analysis chain. In this chain, the file is operated upon by individual modules like:

– FileID – Populates metadata like file entropy, compression ratio, hashes, bitrate, average packet rate, duration, etc.
– Libnids – Handles IP defragmentation and TCP reassembly
– ProtoID – Custom-made, minimal, regex-based protocol identification module (currently supports HTTP/SMTP/FTP/IMAP/POP3 identification)
– Heuristics Engine – Uses a stochastic model based flow scanning engine to detect network traffic abnormalities
– Yara Scan – Uses Yara’s file scanning features to identify malicious network streams
– Shellcode Scan – Uses Libemu to emulate and identify x86 shellcode
– Regex Scan – Helps to identify and extract useful pieces of information (hashes, email addresses, private API keys, password DBs, etc.) from network traffic flows
– Entropy visualization wih graphing support
– DNS/Whois/GeoIP (with Google Maps API v3 integration) modules

Each of these modules sends a report JSON that is then collated to provide a highly verbose summary of the capture file. The analyst has an option of requesting the report in any one of the supported formats (JSON, HTML, PDF).

The framework provides command-line based interactive interface that exposes a file analysis object. This object can be used to scan files and generate reports. This architecture also allows quick embedding within third-party tools and applications. Most of the analysis modules accept configuration options and as such provide a faster alternative to directly tweaking codebase.

With the above listed modules and features in place, the project is still under development. There are plan to extend its functionality beyond capture files to include binary and document formats with the first public release.

Have you ever been faced with a Security Assertion Markup Language (SAML) Service Provider and dreaded the development effort required to attack it? Have you ever crafted custom SAML payloads and wondered why no one had written this tool before? SAMLyze is a new tool that makes pentesting SAML Service Providers fast and easy. It streamlines the attack process by providing preconfigured payloads for testing against XXE, DTD and automatically performs a variety of SAML validations. The web interface makes configuration of custom assertions and modification of any SAML response values simple. Additionally, the SAMLyze workflow allows for integration with web proxies such as Burp Suite and Zed Attack Proxy.

If you have been in the industry a little while you start to realize that tools are only as good as their fuzz lists. Fuzz lists are the secret sauce behind mapping, brute forcing, web exploitation, etc.

SecLists is a collection of multiple types of lists used during security assessments. List types include usernames, passwords, URLs, sensitive data grep strings, fuzzing payloads, mapping/discovery, and many more. Our goals are to enable a security tester to pull this repo onto a new testing box and have access to every type of list that may be needed. This makes security testers less reliant on one tool and more empowered to write their own (or use the one of their choice).

Come check out this project and we will walk you through several usages for the SecLists project using your favorite proxies (Burp + ZAP) and show how you can use it to enhance your current testing methodology!

SERPICO is a simple and intuitive report generation and collaboration tool; the primary function is to cut down on the amount of time it takes to write a penetration testing report. When building a report the user adds “findings” from the template database to the report. When there are enough findings, the user clicks ‘Generate Report’ to create the document of the report. New Report templates can be added through the UI making the reports easy to customize. The Report Templates themselves use a custom Markup Language that includes common variables (example, finding name, customer name, customer address) along with more complex requirements.

We’ve had a lot of growth since the last Arsenal and we are back to show off some of the exciting new features including the ability to import Nessus scans, automated presentation generation, new findings, and more. SERPICO was built by penetration testers with a pen-testers methodology in mind. It might make you hate report writing just a little bit less.

ShinoBOT is a RAT simulator to evaluate an organization’s ability to protect its networks from an advanced targeted attack. It has the basic RAT functionality.
-Execute any command
-Upload / Download any file
-Take a screenshot
-Key logging (new)

It has also many components to make ShinoBOT powerful and hard to be detected, which is called ShinoBOT Suite. It contains exploit (shortcut attack, macro attack, extension spoofing), DGA, crypt, decoy file, downloader, dropper, icon spoofing, etc. And the C&C server is provided as a service, so you do not need to prepare a server.

The new components allow you to evade the detection of the C&C communication, ShinoEncoder and ShinoProxy.

As security professionals, almost every action we take comes down to making a risk-based decision. Web application vulnerabilities, malware infections, physical vulnerabilities, and much more all boils down to some combination of the likelihood of an event happening. Risk management is a relatively simple concept to grasp, but the place where many practitioners fall down is in the tool set. The lucky security professionals work for companies who can afford expensive GRC tools to aide in managing risk. The unlucky majority out there usually end up spending countless hours managing risk, via spreadsheets. It’s cumbersome, time consuming, and just plain sucks. After starting a Risk Management program from scratch at a $1B/year company, Josh Sokol ran into these same barriers and where budget wouldn’t let him go down the GRC route, he finally decided to do something about it. SimpleRisk is a simple and free tool to perform risk management activities. Based entirely on open source technologies and sporting a Mozilla Public License 2.0, a SimpleRisk instance can be stood up in minutes and instantly provides the security professional with the ability to submit risks, plan mitigations, facilitate management reviews, prioritize for project planning, and track regular reviews. It is highly configurable and includes dynamic reporting and the ability to tweak risk formulas on the fly. It is under active development with new features being added all the time. SimpleRisk is truly Enterprise Risk Management simplified.

Sphinx is a highly scalable open source security monitoring tool that offers real-time auditing and analysis of host activities. It works by having clients forward various types of event logs including process execution with cryptographic signature (MD5 hash), network activity, dll/driver loading, as well as miscellaneous system events to a Sphinx server where each event is recorded and analyzed.

With Sphinx, you can quickly find an answer to questions like:

– Can we get a list of every event that happened on machine X between date Y and date Z?
– Can we graphically trace what happened on my computer in the last 10 minutes because I feel there’s something weird going on?
– Who has run a piece of malware whose existence cannot be detected by our existing Anti-Virus product on our network?

Give me a list of program executions as well as dll loads whose reputation is questionable or bad:
– Is there Office application making outbound connection to China?
– Are there any dlls injected into explorer.exe whose digital signature does not belong to Microsoft?

You can build both simple and complex queries to search for threats. These queries can be run recurrently, and send alerts whenever there’s a hit.

This awesome new tool, sqlchop, is a new SQL injection detection engine, using a pipeline of smart recursive decoding, lexical analysis and semantic analysis. It can detect SQL injection query with extremely high accuracy and high recall with 0day SQLi detection ability, far better than nowadays’ SQL injection detection tools, most of which based on regex rules. We proposed a novel algorithm to achieve both blazing fast speed and accurate detection ability using SQL syntax analysis.

I will provide a web interface to demonstrate our new engine. And some CTF-like SQL injection challenge. Hackers are welcomed to have a try.

We will prepare gifts and bonus for those who bypass our engine successfully.

The Volatility Framework

presented by

Michael Ligh

The Volatility Framework is a completely open collection of tools, implemented in Python under the GNU General Public License, for the extraction of digital artifacts from volatile memory (RAM) samples of Windows, Linux, Mac OS X, and Android systems. After last year’s Arsenal, we’re excited to come back and demo an entirely different set of features, such as:

– Extracting injected code and defeating anti-reversing tricks. In particular, we’ll repair a PE file whose header(s) have been erased from memory.
– How to reverse engineer PlugX and determine what system memory it manipulates to hide its persistence mechanism. We’ll use what we learn to design a new Volatility plugin that detects the rootkit trick.
– Using the new unified output rendering engine to consume and process large sets of memory artifacts in JSON, SQL, and other formats. In short, you’ll learn how to build analysis tools on top of the Volatility Framework.

UTIP – Unstructured Threat Intelligence Processing

presented by

Elvis Hovor

UTIP is an open-source solution that automates phases of threat data extraction from unstructured sources, and maps extracted elements to the STIX standard. By utilizing UTIP, security analysts and practitioners can:

– Focus on analysis, instead of spending time parsing text in a document
– Apply customized contextualization and prioritization filters to the extraction process
– Increase automated communication (M2M) by converting ingested data into structured format
– Perform higher order analysis on data extracted from these documents, and determine trends otherwise unattainable

The solution utilizes Scrumblr and Sketchy (open-source provided by Netflix) to scrape advisories, the OpenNLP stack for natural language processing, and a few machine learning techniques. The underlying web platform runs on Django, with D3 (JS framework) utilized to visualize insights drawn.

Text editors give us means to manipulate text documents without knowing the character encoding schemes and formatting mechanisms. Vector graphics editors allow us to edit vector based pictures without understanding the underlying vector math.

We love Wireshark. It does a fantastic job capturing, decoding and analyzing network packets. But what if you want to edit them?

WireEdit is a WYSIWYG editor for network packets. It allows editing network packets at any stack layer without knowing anything about their syntax and encoding rules.

YARD Stick One

presented by

Michael Ossmann

YARD Stick One is a sub-1 GHz wireless transceiver controlled directly from your computer. It uses the same radio circuit as the popular IM-Me. The radio functions that are possible by customizing IM-Me firmware are now at your fingertips when you attach YARD Stick One to a computer via USB.

YARD Stick One (Yet Another Radio Dongle) comes with RfCat firmware installed, courtesy of atlas. RfCat allows you to control the wireless transceiver from an interactive Python shell or your own program running on your computer. The device also has CC Bootloader installed, so you can upgrade RFCat or install your own firmware without any additional programming hardware.

Featuring an external antenna connector, transmit and receive amplification, and plenty of expansion options, YARD Stick One is the most powerful CC1111 board available. Unlike previous devices based on the CC1111 transceiver, it operates effectively over the entire frequency range of the transceiver IC, and it is open source hardware.
