Presentations

Introduction to OpenWrt - Parth Shukla

Level: Beginner

OpenWRT is a Linux-based alternative firmware for popular routers that can be used to gain extensive control over your home networking and its security. This presentation will focus on OpenWrt and how you can use it to improve your home security using cheap hardware and learn some cool stuff along the way. The talk will quickly go through many of the security features that are present in OpenWrt with live demos so people can get a first hand feel of the system and components. The router I'll be using for demo is WD N600.
The goal of this demo session is to make people feel comfortable enough to give this a go at home either on their current router or next time they buy a new router. I will try and leave some time at the end of the session so people can come play with the router themselves. 
The OpenWrt basics we will cover:
  • Getting OpenWrt on your router
  • Package management
  • Web interface/SSH management
Depending on time we will also at least touch upon some of the following:
  • VLANs & Multiple APs
  • Statefull firewall, NAT & port forwarding
  • OpenVPN Server
  • Port knocking
  • Ostiary daemon
  • SSHD Hardening

If you want to connect to Parth's OpenWrt router for remote management and exploration please bring a laptop (with a full charge)! Make sure you can SSH out of it. For Windows users, you should install/download putty and WinSCP or equivalent.
