My contribution may be able to demonstrate how easy it is to steal and hijack data and that you really need to be careful where you connect.

Sketch 1 (1,500 characters)

This interface shows that by just plugging a raspberry or other tools equipped with a network card to a monitoring tool to continuously intercept all data passing around, map users and even modify their data to possibly display them advertising targeted. On the sketch, for example we can see that a raspberry in a mall can see the number of people, how often they came, the time remained, and even with the distance between their smartphone tool, see where they are. It may seem absurd but in a shopping center we are also a product. With a label, just scan to know a lot more.

Sketch 2 (1,500 characters)

On this application, launched on a jailbroken iPhone, we can see that with a simple interface it is possible to do a lot. The first tool allows you to recover all bank cards near the iPhone. The second tool allows to duplicate a badge, easy to enter a hotel room, a security gantry where any other place to secure. The last tool allows you to create a hotspot that allows you to manipulate data, redirect to fake sites, steal cookies.

What have you learned through this sketching process? (1,000 characters)

Using the named tools (airmon, dnsspoof) from the command line, I realized that it would be very simple to integrate them into a web interface and make these tools really mainstream and therefore even more dangerous.

Tell us more about you. (1,000 characters)

My name is Thomas, I'm 20 years old and I'm French, it's been more than 7 years now that I am immersed in computer science. I started by opening computers, I am now "open" programs, I love reverse engineering. I also create myself programs and websites, with more or less useful some times, I do it mostly for fun. And i realize a particular attention to the design of my creations. I'm also studying in that, but I've been learning all by myself, so I'm flying over the school curriculum.

Why are you participating in this Challenge? (750 characters)

I participated because it is the first time that I see a contest on a domain that I adore and admire. Hijacking systems, discovering vulnerabilities and then securing them I love that. And to see a competition that brings together my passion for web design and security has really interested me. Even if I do not win I would have had a lot of fun doing my sketches.
