kandi X-RAY | TinyCheck Summary

TinyCheck is a Python library typically used in Networking, Wifi, Nodejs applications. TinyCheck has no bugs, it has a Permissive License and it has medium support. However TinyCheck has 3 vulnerabilities and it build file is not available. You can download it from GitHub.

TinyCheck allows you to easily capture network communications from a smartphone or any device which can be associated to a Wi-Fi access point in order to quickly analyze them. This can be used to check if any suspect or malicious communication is outgoing from a smartphone, by using heuristics or specific Indicators of Compromise (IoCs). The idea of TinyCheck emerged in a meeting about stalkerware with a French women's shelter. During this meeting we talked about how to easily detect stalkerware without installing very technical apps nor doing forensic analysis on the victim's smartphone. The initial concept was to develop a tiny kiosk device based on Raspberry Pi which can be used by non-tech people to test their smartphones against malicious communications issued by stalkerware or any spyware. Of course, TinyCheck can also be used to spot any malicious communications from cybercrime to state-sponsored implants. It allows the end-user to push his own extended Indicators of Compromise via a backend in order to detect some ghosts over the wire.

            Low signal strength in 5Ghz wifi
            Asked 2022-Mar-24 at 12:30

            I've got a router Mikrotik hAP AC2. Recently I've updated RouterOS to version 7.1.3 and have found that 5GHz access point has issues.

            My notebook sometimes disconnects from 5GHz wlan, and one of smartphones in my family doesn't connect to 5GHz at all.

            Here is the plot of wifi signal strength, that I've collected using my notebook located in direct visibility of the router at the distance of about 5-6m.

            Cyan line shows 2.4GHz signal and red line shows 5GHz signal. Numbers are -42dbm for 2.4GHz and -68dbm for 5GHz.

            My impression is that generally this is not normal. I repeat, there were no obstacles between the notebook and the router, only thin air.

            I've tried to reset configuration for 5GHz wlan, change its region, but without success.

            How can I fix this?

            Here are current settings:



            Answered 2022-Mar-24 at 12:30

            5GHz Wifi is always lower strength than 2.4GHz, it's physics. 5GHz originally improved performance due to moving away from the then congested 2.4GHz band, however, now 5GHz is just as common so despite having a wider range of frequencies it still ends up congested.

            5GHz allows for higher throughput while having the disadvantage of being attenuated quicker due to the higher frequency

            2.4GHz has a lower data throughput but isn't attenuated as easily.

            Is there a way to generate a wifi qr code with pillow and qrcode library in python?
            Asked 2022-Feb-18 at 02:16

            I think there's a way to generate a wifi qr with pillow and qrcode library in python. I had searched in the internet and there's no information.

            I will apreciate your help. Thank's




            Answered 2022-Feb-18 at 02:16

            Yes there is. QR codes are just images that are easy for a computer to decode via taking a picture into something useful.

            QR codes are just text/strings encoded into an image.

            Python has a library called qrcode.

            Mobile phone support a specific format of text that tells it to try and connect to a wifi network. This wiki shows an example of what that connection string would look like.

            So here is the steps.

            1. Create a wifi connection string that mobile phones support.
            2. Pass that string into qrcode to generate a PIL image.
            3. Do what you want with that PIL image.

            Why is 802.11 to 802.3 conversion impossible in monitoring mode?
            Asked 2022-Jan-31 at 00:39

            When I use Wireshark to capture traffics with my wlan card with monitor mode already set, it only displays 802.11 frames. However, if I use Wireshark with managed mode wlan(promiscuous mode), it certainly displays 802.3 frames.

            I searched for some related information and found out that 'network bridging' allows devices to convert 802.11 wireless packets to 802.3 packets. In case of packet capturing, pcap allows conversion.
            (link: How to real time convert wireless packet(802.11) to Ethernet packet(802.3) in windows?)

            So, Why is 802.11 to 802.3 frame conversion impossible when using monitor mode(not associated to the wireless network)?

            Below are pictures of the situation. Thank you in advance.

            Answered 2022-Jan-31 at 00:39

            For one thing, not all 802.11 packets have Ethernet equivalents; only data packets do. In monitor mode, in addition to data packets, control and management packets can be captured - you're seeing those types of packets in your monitor-mode capture.

            For another thing, when capturing in monitor mode on a "protected" network (WEP, WPA), data packets are encrypted (to protect them from being sniffed), and can't be converted to Ethernet packets until they're decrypted. Under some circumstances, Wireshark can decrypt them, but Wireshark doesn't do any conversion from 802.11 to 802.3 in any circumstances - when not capturing in monitor mode, the 802.11 adapter converts data packets to 802.3 packets after decrypting them, and doesn't show non-data packets to the host.

            B.A.T.M.A.N ad-hoc WiFi nodes cannot ping each other
            Asked 2022-Jan-24 at 00:31

            I am working to connect 2 linux machines, each with this USB Dongle: https://www.tp-link.com/us/home-networking/usb-adapter/archer-t2u-nano/, to an ad-hoc WiFi network managed by B.A.T.M.A.N ( batman-adv ).

            When run, this scripts show that both devices are joined to the same ad-hoc/IBSS network.

            I statically assigned ip addresses and routes to both 'bat0' devices. However, I cannot ping or otherwise use the connection between the two devices.

            What am I doing wrong and how can I use the mesh network in Linux between the connected client and server? Thanks.

            The answer really is that you need a WiFi radio that actually correclty implements Ad-Hoc/IBSS networking in the driver stack.

            Is there an method to convert wifi frame to ethernet frame?
            Asked 2022-Jan-01 at 13:40

            I've searched for some information about frame structure in wifi and ethernet in the Data Link layer and found out that the two frames look quite different. I am wondering if there is some method in the router that converts wifi frame to ethernet frame in a such network where wireless network is connected to wired network, like WLAN. Since I'm really new to this field, I may have some misunderstanding issues. Thank you.



            Answered 2022-Jan-01 at 13:40

            Connecting different or similar networks on the data link layer (L2) is done by a network bridge - you extract relevant data from an ingress frame (esp. source and destination MAC addresses), create a new frame for egress and copy the relevant data into it.

            A bridge also examines each frame's source MAC address to learn where each node is located, so it only copies a frame to the other side when its destination is located there.

            However, a router works on the network layer (L3): it forwards by IP destination address between IP networks/subnets. It uses data link layer (L2) encapsulation for reaching the next hop but doesn't convert anything. (It removes the encapsulating frame from a received packet, decides where to forward the packet, and then creates a new frame for that packet.)

            You might be referring to a consumer-grade Wi-Fi router which effectively contains a NAT router, an Ethernet switch, a wireless access point (mostly bridged), DHCP and DNS servers, etc, blurring the distinction between all those functions.
