Descriere

In Detail

Ever wished you could play around with all the neat gadgets your favorite spies use (like James Bond or Michael Westen)? With the introduction of the remarkable Raspberry Pi and a few USB accessories, anybody can now join in on the action.

Discover how to turn your Raspberry Pi into a multipurpose secret agent tool! Through a series of fun, easy-to-follow projects you'll learn how to set up audio/video surveillance, explore your Wi-Fi network, play pranks on your friends, and even learn how to free your Raspberry Pi from the constraints of the wall socket.

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents starts out with the initial setup of your Raspberry Pi, guides you through a number of pranks and secret agent techniques, and then shows you how to apply what you've learned out in the real world.

Learn how to configure your operating system for maximum mischief and start exploring the audio, video, and Wi-Fi projects. Learn how to record, listen, or talk to people from a distance and how to distort your voice. You can even plug in your webcam and set up a motion detector with an alarm, or find out what the other computers on your Wi-Fi network are up to. Once you've mastered the techniques, combine them with a battery pack and GPS for the ultimate off-road spy kit.

Approach

A playful, informal approach to using the Raspberry Pi for mischief!

Who this book is for

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents is for all mischievous Raspberry Pi owners who'd like to see their computer transform into a neat spy gadget to be used in a series of practical pranks and projects. No previous skills are required to follow along and if you're completely new to Linux, you'll pick up much of the basics for free.

Apart from the Raspberry Pi board itself, a USB microphone and/or a webcam is required for most of the audio/video topics and a Wi-Fi dongle is recommended for the networking examples. A Windows/Mac OS X/Linux computer (or second Raspberry Pi) is also recommended for remote network access.

Despre autor

Stefan Sjogelid grew up in 1980s Sweden, getting hooked on 8-bit consoles, Amigas and BBSes. With a background in system and network administration, he packed his bags for Southeast Asia and continued to work in IT for many years, before love and a magic 8-ball told him to seek new opportunities in Canada. The Raspberry Pi is the latest gadget to grab Stefan's attention, and after much tinkering and learning a great deal about the unique properties of the Pi, he launched the "PiLFS" (http://www.intestinate.com/pilfs) website, which teaches readers how to build their own GNU/Linux distribution and applications that are particularly useful on the Raspberry Pi.

I'd like to thank Anton for putting up with my alt-tabbing during our movie marathons, and a special thanks to my brother for showing me Southeast Asia, and my parents, for buying me a PC instead of a moped.

About the Reviewers

Valéry Seys is a project engineer and a brilliant, self-taught man, having started his computer studies in the early 80s. He has come a long way, from working with the cheap Sinclair ZX81, to IBM Mainframe, and Unix. He is driven by a philosophy expressed by Stephen Wolfram:

We are in the exciting stage that everyone, whether a scientist or not, can contribute—(Santa Fe Institute, 1984).

He currently works as an independent consultant for major French companies working in the sectors of telecom, banking, press publishing, insurance, defense, and administration.

My thanks go to Stefan, for including me in this book, and the scientist pioneers Stephen Wolfram and Karl Sims.

Masumi Mutsuda Zapater is a graduate of the Computer Science Engineering program from the UPC BarcelonaTech University. He combines his artistic job as a voice actor with his technological job at Itnig, an Internet startup accelerator.

Preface

The Raspberry Pi was developed with the intention of promoting basic computer science in schools, but the Pi also represents a welcome return to simple, fun, and open computing.

Using gadgets for purposes other than those intended, especially for mischief and pranks, has always been an important part of adopting a new technology and making it your own.

With a $25 Raspberry Pi computer and a few common USB gadgets, anyone can afford to become a secret agent.

What this book covers

Chapter 1, Getting Up to No Good, takes you through the initial setup of the Raspberry Pi and preparing it for sneaky headless operations over the network.

Chapter 2, Audio Antics, teaches you how to eavesdrop on conversations or play pranks on friends by broadcasting your own distorted voice from a distance.

Chapter 3, Webcam and Video Wizardry, shows you how to setup a webcam video feed that can be used to detect intruders, or to stage a playback scare.

Chapter 4, Wi-Fi Pranks – Exploring your Network, teaches you how to capture, manipulate, and spy on network traffic that flows through your network.

Chapter 5, Taking your Pi Off-road, shows you how to encrypt your Pi and send it away on missions while keeping in touch via GPS and Twitter updates.

    Fun ideas in this ebook. Might as well combine my interests in the Pi and 007, two great UK products!
