NRF24 Sniffer

created by hek , updated

The wireless 2.4GHz Nordic Semiconductor nRF24L01+ chip (or nRF24 for short), does not support promiscuous mode, which in theory makes it impossible to capture network traffic between different nodes on a network. This tool was developed by Yveaux.

This project contains a wireless sniffer for nRF24L01+ wireless modules meeting following requirements:

  • Based on commodity, cheap hardware
  • Traffic capturing for network with known parameters (channel, baudrate, base address)
  • Analysis using Wireshark network protocol analyzer
  • Possibility to analyze protocols which use the nRF24 for transport in their network
