Several talks by Osmocom team member were presented at 29C3. Slides and video are available.
Osmocom-BB team member Sylvain Munaut gave a talk at PHDays 2012 about abusing the calypso phones.
It mostly focus on the technical details of the DSP hacking that was done previously to use those phones as passive sniffer and demonstrates some more hacking to turn those phones into BTS.
OsmocomBB team member Andreas Eversberg has been working on a new RSSI monitor firmware application within OsmocomBB.
Using this firmware, it is possible to monitor the RSSI of individual ARFCNs or even the entire spectrum.
Depending on the hardware capabilities (e.g. Hardware/FilterReplacement), it is also possible to measure the uplink RSSI.
More details are available at rssi.bin.
The current status of this firmware is available from the
laforge/monitor branch in git, but is expected to be merged soon into master.
Sylvain Munaut was presenting on Wideband GSM Sniffing at the 27th annual Chaos Communication Congress, where he was using a series of four phones running OsmocomBB as a GSM packet sniffer.
