Project Introduction & Summary

This is the blog page for Team B2’s capstone project. This semester, our team will build a computer program designed to output a signal when someone speaks to a smart speaker, obfuscating their command. While many smart speaker exploits exist, they take advantage of unrealistic setups, such as multiple speakers in one room or playing loud ultrasonic signals that can penetrate walls. Our exploit attempts to prevent smart speaker interaction on commodity hardware, thus preventing access to a home’s IoT network. By the end of the semester, we hope to have created a low-footprint, background process that maliciously runs on a nearby computer to listen for audio and obfuscate commands when someone speaks nearby.
