HackRF One is a Software Defined Radio peripheral capable of transmission or reception of radio signals from 1 MHz to 6 GHz.
HackRF One is designed to enable test and development of modern and next generation radio technologies. HackRF One is an open source hardware platform that can be used as a USB peripheral or programmed for stand-alone operation.
With both military and public applications, the majority of wireless systems in the digital age could easily be transceived by PortaPack HackRF One. That’s because this SDR (Software Defined Radio) device can interact with a number of technologies including smartphones, GPS, IT infrastructures, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and even broadcasting stations.
The overall concept behind PortaPack HackRF is to bring an open source peripheral that can assist modern day engineers and researchers for improving next generation communication systems.
The HackRF One is one the most popular SDR devices on the market and it is used to aggregate radio communication systems that implement in software instead of hardware the components in charge of modulating and demodulating radio signals.
The idea is to have a device that is able to receive and transmit different radio protocols just by configuring its software.
Besides legitimate uses, cyber criminals are known to use the PortaPack HackRF One to perform a wide variety of attacks such as “Jamming attacks” where the attacker emits noise to block the reception of a signal, “Replay attacks” where a signal is recorded and replayed without the original source device, “GPS spoofing” or even “Side channel attacks” that allow an attacker to remotely monitor what is being displayed on a monitor of a victim.
Cybersecurity professionals believe that understanding how cyber criminals use PortaPack HackRF One can help organizations adjust system vulnerabilities to reduce hacking risks.
