As the low cost options for radio traffic capture, analysis and transmission are becoming available, some security researchers have developed open source tools that potentially make it easier to assess the security of the devices that rely on radio communications without the need for extensive knowledge and understanding of the associated concepts. Recent research in this area suggests that primitive visual analysis techniques may be applied to decode selected radio signals successfully. This study builds upon the previous research in the area of sub GHz radio communications and aims to outline the associated methodology as well as verify some of the reported techniques for carrying out radio frequency replay attacks using low cost materials and freely available software.
