 Software defined radio (SDR) is rapidly becoming a well-known term even outside the Information Security industry. From the ability to set off emergency alert systems to emulating car keyfobs and everything in between, SDR is opening a whole new set of doors for penetration testing and security research (in some cases, quite literally!). In this webcast, we'll discuss some of the basics of software defined radio, commonly available market options, and how you can begin to use these tools to explore the airwaves around you.

 Larry Pesce is a co-author of SEC617: Wireless Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking
