In recent years, a huge number of pentester devices have come to the foreground and new ones are constantly appearing. Most are sold in disparate stores all over (including aliexpress), and pentesters have a new headache: choose among dozens of similar devices or search for another “universal” solution. Finally, Yago Hansen, a cool specialist and information security consultant, simply put together a catalog of cool devices, hardware, and accessories that have proven their worth. Now the catalog of the second version contains 177 items from 8 categories. We bring to your attention its adaptation in the form of a cycle of 7 posts (some categories will be combined or divided into two articles due to the difference in volume).

What will happen in the loop:


  • Mini computers
  • RF
  • Wi-Fi + Network
  • RFID & amp; NFC + HID & amp; Keylog
  • Bus
  • Accessories 1/2
  • Accessories 2/2

▍4. Raspberry Pi 3 model B +


ITKarma picture

Single-liner on Linux for a variety of attack vectors

The Raspberry Pi has a lot of fans, which means a good level of support for a beginner. In addition to security specialists and hackers launching Kali Linux on it, many developers use Pi in scientific and industrial projects. Although originally invented by Pi to introduce schoolchildren to programming, today the Raspberry Pi is capable of truly amazing things with the right choice of accessories and creative thinking. For example, Raspberry Pi used a prototype cyber weapon in the form of a drone performing a massive deauth attack.

▍5. Raspberry Pi 3 model A +


ITKarma picture
The Little-Known Raspi Single-Payer

The Raspberry Pi 3 model A + uses the same base as the Raspberry Pi 1 Model A +, but both models are not well known. In this small model, the form factor is very different from the Raspberry Pi model B +, and perhaps this is the only reason to buy it instead of my older brother. For some projects, size can be crucial, but in most cases, you should choose B +, as it offers twice as much memory, Ethernet, and three additional USB ports.

New Version of Raspi

In speed and performance, the new Raspberry Pi 4 is one step ahead of its younger brothers. For the first time on Pi, the possibilities of a real desktop are available - whether it is editing documents, tables or presentations, or using a browser with a bunch of open tabs - only quieter and cheaper. The energy-efficient Pi 4 with passive cooling comes with a gigabit port along with Wi-Fi and Bluetooth, two USB 2.0 and two 3.0 and is offered with a different amount of memory (1, 2 or 4 gigabytes).

▍7. ODROID XU4


ITKarma picture

Charged Raspberry Pi

In some cases, Pi is not enough for certain hacker projects, it requires more CPU/GPU/memory or a USB 3 connection. ODROID XU4 is the best choice for such projects. Raspberry Pi 3 is cheaper and better supported, but for GSM/4G LTE hacking usually require cool SDRs like BladeRF or USRP with USB 3 support. Also, in projects using rainbow tables you will need a high-speed memory bus like EMMC or SATA. Both active (XU4) and passive (XU4Q) cooling can be used on this board. Supports Linux and Android.

High Performance Linux-based Board

RockPro64 is the most productive single-board from PINE64 with six-core SOC Rockchip RK3399 and four-core GPU Mali-T860MP4 and four-channel LPDDR4 memory. In addition, there is USB 3.0, USB type-C with DP1.2, PCIe x4 and eMMC. And also a 40-pin connector with I2C, SPI, UARTs and GPIO. The board is backward compatible with the old PINE64 peripherals, including Wi-Fi/BT module, camera and LCD panel, but a set of new peripherals is also available. All this fits in the standard “A” sizes of the original PINE A64. The only drawback is that this model is significantly larger than the Raspberry Pi. ROCKPro64 4GB version is announced by LTS, that is, the support period is at least 5 years.
