By Ingrid Lunden Just as the FCC has approved a plan to invest $2 billion into U.S. schools to improve WiFi, Facebook is taking a step to improve WiFi for students in their homes. Today the company is announcing a pilot in North Carolina to provide free WiFi-based internet access to students homes. The project, focused around Forest City, is being rolled out in cooperation with Rutherford County… Read More Source: Facebook Pilots Free WiFi For Students’ Homes In The Backyard Of Its NC Data Center ·
WiFiSLAM is transforming the indoor location world. Our solution creates an entirely new way to interact with the indoors, and allows you to augment your physical space with location-aware services. ·
Remote terminal application that allows roaming, supports intermittent connectivity, and provides intelligent local echo and line editing of user keystrokes.
Mosh is a replacement for SSH. It's more robust and responsive, especially over Wi-Fi, cellular, and long-distance links.
Mosh is free software, available for GNU/Linux, FreeBSD, and Mac OS X. ·
Our previous work on WPA-PSK lookup tables incorporated ~172,000 word dictionary. While impressive, it didn't cover a very large part of the key space. The password selection was a bit on the crude side (whatever we could find to make up 172,000 words!). After the initial success we found with this set of tables, we decided to figure out a more optimal set of tables. This set, comprising the same 1000 SSID list incorporates a password list compiled from contributions from RenderMan, Mark Burnett and Kevin Mitnick. The resulting list is ~1,000,000 words for a total of approximately 40GB of hash tables for the top 1000 SSID's. H1kari of OpenCiphers.org collaborated his work on FPGA arrays to offer up some extreme computing power to crunch these numbers. His super awesome contribution of time on 15 FPGA arrays allowed us to compute these tables in a record 3 days. He made some small changes to coWPAtty for FPGA support and are available at openciphers.org in the downloads area. ·
