Troopers 19 – Hack your badge

Sadly, TROOPERS 19 is already over. I had great fun meeting all of you, helping you with your badge problems and seeing others hacking on their badges for example to get custom images on there.

With this year’s badge we wanted to give you something you can reuse after the conference, learn new things new build something on your own.

As promised in our talk Jeff and I would like to give you a short introduction into the badge internals. Along with this post we will release the source code for the badge firmware, the provisioning server and the schematics for the PCB.

Troopers 15 Badge

As TROOPERS15 has come to an end, I’ve finally got the time and energy to give you a deeper insight into the TR15 badge. As most of you have probably heard during the conference, this year’s badge was based on the OpenPCD2. The OpenPCD 2 is a 13.56MHz NFC Reader, Writer and Emulator under the GNU GPL v2. As NFC is, yet again, on an uprise, a badge with NFC simply gives you the chance to fiddle around and hack stacks of stuff in the real world. Adding some TROOPERS spirit and a few little secrets we hope we’ve designed a pretty nice badge!

A TROOPER’s Keyboard, part2

Greetings fellow TROOPERs,

TROOPERS14 has come to an end, and it’s finally time to let you have a go at the Badge’s source code. As promised, it was slightly modified and extended, to show you the full potential of your new gadget. I’ve added some nice payloads from Nikhil Mittal and a few own ones. Above that, for those who took their parts for soldering home, I’ve also added a few quick instructions on how to do the soldering.

Being a TROOPER is tough: You need to know loads of information, learn even more and be able to work fast.

This year we decided to increase your efficiency and speed when collecting data from computer systems and, let’s say, hacking them! Your newest gadget is based on a plain Arduino Leonardo, modded with one of our famous shields. After adding a few LEDs and buttons, it will power up to full functionality.
