802.15.4/ZigBee Analysis and Security: tools for practical exploration of the attack surface
Ricky A. Melgares
Dartmouth TR2011-689

Abstract: This thesis explores methods and techniques for surveying 802.15.4 and ZigBee wireless networks. The tools developed will aid in reconnaissance attacks against target networks; information gathered during this process will be used to profile a target network and its devices, as well as to pinpoint the geolocation of devices for executing physical attacks against the onboard hardware. Attacks against the PHY and MAC layers of the 802.15.4 standard will be explored as well.

Note: Senior Honors Thesis. Advisor: Sergey Bratus.
