Unit Testing Pyserial Code

We’ve been working on a new Faraday project called faradayio. It’s goal is clear, to simplify everything. The way faradayio simplifies the project is by making Faraday appear as if it’s a network interface by using a TUN adapter. This is similar to how VPN software works on your computer. We collect all network traffic Read more about Unit Testing Pyserial Code[…]

Delay-Tolerant Networks Might Be The Killer App Ham Radio Needs

Amateur radio stands to gain more by leveraging the Internet as opposed to fighting it. Projects such as AREDN re-purpose commercial WiFi hardware to provide Internet connectivity over ham radio bands. Sending Internet traffic over amateur radio prevents the use of encryption and any commercial data. The result is a limited use case of AREDN Read more about Delay-Tolerant Networks Might Be The Killer App Ham Radio Needs[…]
