Tech Segment: MiniPwner (TP-Link TL-WR703n Pen Testing Drop Box)

The MiniPwner is a pen-testing drop box. Prior to the MiniPwner we were using a Pwnie Express or an Apple travel router as drop boxes during physical penetration tests. But these solutions depended on a known IP addressing scheme or DHCP, a power outlet near an open network port, and unfiltered Internet access. My wish list for a home-built drop box was a router that was small, inexpensive, OpenWRT supported, had wired and wireless interfaces, had space for a USB drive, and could be battery powered, all without soldering or custom firmware. The WR703N router had recently become available and OpenWRT supported and seemed to be a perfect fit.
