Snuff is a special workshop organized by Handa Gote Research Development about wireless telecommunications, traffic and data corruption. Participants will create an electronic device that amplifies wireless Internet traffic, Bluetooth data transfer, mobile phones, microwaves and other devices with electromagnetic activity in the 2.4 GHz range.
During the workshop topics related with vulnerability, data transfer interruption and sniffing will be discussed.
Documentation of the device can be found here: http://r-aw.cc/snuff
The workshop is limited to 15 participants. Experience in the work with electronics is not necessary. Participants keep the devices they create.
