Book Description

The book 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 audio, video, or Wi-Fi techniques. You will learn how to record, listen, or talk to people from a distance and how to set up your own phone network. Then, 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.

Raspberry Pi for Secret Agents, Second Edition has everything you need to turn your Raspberry Pi into an information-gathering powerhouse. Use the practical spy and pranking techniques to amuse yourself or your friends.
