 * PersonalTelcoBssids
 * [http://www.personaltelco.net/~caleb/kismet/2006-09-30/ Data from "SE Team" on audit day]

Location: All Around the Portland AreaBR Date and Time: September 30th, 10:30 am, UrbanGrind BR


  • Visit, test and collect information at locations identified as once active Personal Telco nodes.

Protocol (tentative)

  • Train in Protocol
  • In teams of 2 or 3, dispatch to each identified location. Identified locations are found here: PersonalTelcoBssids. Each location will have a sheet of paper with a map (I haven't figured out a tractable way to print a nice map on each sheet like I imagined, so unless someone figures something out very soon, I might just end up putting numbered dots on a few city maps).

  • One laptop running Kismet or equivalent network stumbler, with GPS if possible.
    • Keep an eye on kismet to/from to see if you see more new PTP BSSIDs and check them out as well
      • CalebPhillips figured out a good way to do this: in kismet, sort by SSID, scroll to the www.personaltelco.net section and look for ! which indicates new packets. beware that some nodes leave off the www part of the SSID.

    • Drive around a few neighboring blocks to collect relative signal strength data, which will help in triangulating network location
    • At the end of the day, upload stumbling data to wigle (or give to Russell to do so).
  • Another laptop available to connect to the node
  • At each location,
    • Discover AP presence/absence
    • For each PersonalTelco-related AP present:

      • AP SSID
      • AP BSSID
      • Note strength of signal at curb
      • Connect
      • Note presence/absence of splash and any self-identification thereon. If captive portal indicates usage over time (N authentications since date X), note that as well.
      • Note local network: DHCP server IP, assigned IP.
      • Identify the upstream IP using http://www.whatsmyip.org or equivalent

      • If possible, identify the lat/long or address of the AP
