WIRELESS CTF

The Wireless Village will be present at  BsidesNoVa for impromptu training and discussions and some WCTF shenanigans.

We cater to those who are new to radio communications as well as to those who have been playing for a long time. We are looking for the inexperienced people on up to the SIGINT squirrels to hang out, play, teach and learn wireless. The Village playtime can be done with a little knowledge, a pen tester’s determination, $40 worth of equipment, or $4000 worth of equipment, but the key is to play, teach, and learn.

About Toools
The mission of the Open Organisation Of Lockpickers is to advance the general public knowledge about locks and lockpicking. By examining locks, safes, and other such hardware and by publicly discussing our findings we hope to strip away the mystery with which so many of these products are imbued.
The more that people know about lock technology, the better they are capable of understanding how and where certain weaknesses are present.
