DARWIN (A parasite covert wireless network)


While wireless networks are doing great with their significant features, we are busy finding a way to (mis!)use them, taking advantage of some of those significant features to our leisure and mischief. And in this endeavor, we are pleased to introduce you all to:

DARWIN (Disguised Adaptive Resilient Wireless Independent Network)

Following our DEFCON 24 talk on wireless covert channels, we knew that the real-world use case is missing. DARWIN did the needful to fill in the gap appropriately. DARWIN is an application of wireless covert channels, which at present facilitates an unmanaged chat utility, in presence||absence of legitimate wireless networks in local radio periphery.
