What cyber threats the future brings to us? An analysis of the cybersecurity strategies of Canada, New Zealand, the UK, the US, and Australia.
Introduction The terms cyberwarfare and cyberterrorism are both used since the 1990s for describing adverse events in cyberspace. Even though the three-decade history of cyberwarfare and cyberterrorism, academic communities could not agree on a widely accepted definition of these terms and draw a clear line between the two types of cyber events.
Due to the strict COVID-19 policies in Australia, the BSides Canberra hacker conference was back in mid-April 2021. My visit was a good excuse to take my pwnagotchi for a walk in Canberra, and draw some conclusions of the Wi-Fi security practices of the Australian capital city.
For those not familiar with the pwnagotchi project, it makes Wi-Fi password auditing fun again. A pwnagotchi device is essentially bettercap installed on a Pi Zero, allowing to capture Wi-Fi packets on the go. The captured Wi-Fi packets are automatically uploaded to third-party services, and then analysed to reveal weak wireless passwords (PSKs) of the nearby wireless access points.
