While researching for my individual video project I came across this tool which allows for the sniffing and interception of bluetooth packets. This article covers some of the basic functionality of an Ubertooth One. It's really quite interesting to see all the possibilities with devices like these. The tech behind them is very interesting as well. Hopefully, I'll be able to integrate some of this technology into my project video and include a demo of some of the interesting things it can do.
PGPy is a library for python that enables the creation, storage, and encryption/decryption of PGP keys and files in python. Recently, in a small project to reacquaint myself with python, I used PGPy for key generation and encryption and decryption. That project can be found in my github at https://github.com/lpowell . The goal of the project was to use command-line switches to control the program, and to provide basic encryption and decryption capabilities, along with rot13 and base64 encoding. First, to load in a key use key, _ = pgpy.PGPKey.from_file(keyfilename) . This loads the key from either a binary or ASCII armored file. You can swap out .from_file for .from_blob , if you plan on using a key stored in a string or bytes object rather than a file. In my example code, I pull the key from a file, as I found it to be the simpler method. Next, you'll need to open a file or create a string or bytes object that contains the message you wish to encrypt. We'll call this file
