1 year, 10 months ago


Now, in a century of popularity the Internet and various content, including media which size in HD quality can occupy several Gigabyte most sharply there was a problem of a high-speed file transfer on a network. As an example it is possible to consider work of news television station where the reporter, being on other continent, has to transfer quickly the reporting shot in high quality to the central studio for processing and start in air. It is clear, that here transfer speed plays a key role as news will not be news any more if it appears in couple of days.

1 year, 10 months ago


Wi-Fi is one of main types of a wireless communication now. The majority of communication devices are equipped with this wireless type of communication. But here smart gadgets, i.e. devices with the smart prefix usually do not use Wi-Fi for communication with each other. Exceptions are, but there is not a lot of them.

Vendors reluctantly go for embedding of such communication modules in smart gadgets as Wi-Fi demands considerable costs of energy. And it is a real problem for devices which have to be small, cheap and work in a standalone mode months or even years. But now this problem is gradually solved, apparently.

At the beginning of the research Miller and Valasek tried to crack the multimedia Jeep system through Wi-Fi. The vendor of the car, the Chrysler company, offers an opportunity of use of Wi-fi on a subscription. It turned out that this wireless communication to crack rather easily because the password on it was generated automatically on the basis of time when the machine and multimedia system turned on for the first time.

Theoretically, measuring time to within seconds, this method is quite reliable, considering a large number of options of time. But if you know at least year of production and will guess month, then search will be limited by 15 million combinations. If to reduce time to a day time, there will be already 7 million combinations. And it is already rather quite good result – it can be probrutforsit for an hour.



The problem is that during the whole hour it is necessary to be near this jeep to remain within reach of Wi-Fi. But researchers found other way. It turned out that the password for Wi-Fi is created before in system are set date and time – that is, default time of counting plus several seconds for that the on-board computer was loaded.

And this time makes exactly January 01 2013 00.00.32 GMT.
