I had a chance to review the 13.56MHz RFID field detector from Montie Gear and I have to say, I like this detector. It’s very thin, somewhat flexible, and is the size of a credit card so it fits in my wallet.
I love the internet. Thank jebuz I’m alive during such an amazing time… truly the dawn of a new age. I’ve been working on an amazing product development project with some fine chaps in the Amsterdam area… and the amazing thing is, we’ve never met in person. I know this is commonplace these days, but [...]
I recently had an issue with https functionality in WordPress when working behind a reverse proxy like Pound or nginx. I’m running Pound, so the solution for me was to add specific proto headers to the pound.cfg file; ## HTTPS listening ports ListenHTTPS HeadRemove "HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO" HeadRemove "X_FORWARDED_PROTO" AddHeader "HTTP_X_FORWARDED_PROTO: https" AddHeader "X_FORWARDED_PROTO: https" ## HTTP [...]
I recently had a package show up in yum as being installed, but it was not or had been manually removed, so the yum removal process was broken and the ghost package was causing a yum update to fail. The solution was to use rpm to simply and safely remove the entry from the database, [...]
In this video I unlock a Samsung Ezon SHS-3120 electronic deadbolt using my NFC implant from http://dangerousthings.com Great things about the Ezon SHS-3120; – It’s completely self contained and battery powered – It uses only the UID bits of Mifare S50 tags for access control – It leaves memory contents of the S50 free for [...]
Combing through spec documents can be a pain in the ass. I recently had to come to a much better understanding of how security features worked inside Mifare S50 and S70 RFID tags, so I put this doc together to try to make the whole thing a little more understandable and easier to read. The [...]
This video demonstrates how to get a good consistent read with a 2x12mm Mifare S50 tag and a mobile phone. I use my Samsung Galaxy Nexus to read a glass 2x12mm S50 tag in a sterilization pouch, and read the tag implanted in my right hand.
I had some questions from Dangerous Things customers that centered around getting a good consistent read of the 2x12mm NFC compatible tags they purchased. Rather than respond via email, I figured it would be easier to make this video to explain how to get the tag to read consistently when used with typical “flat plane” [...]
I don’t own a gun. I want one… heck, I’ve made lists of guns I’d want to buy… but this post isn’t about that. It’s about the absolute insanity of “gun nut” types when it comes to even trying to have a discussion about gun control. So I figured, why not take this gun debate [...]
