The PlugBot project is a security research project by RedTeam Security, led by Jeremiah Talamantes. It is designed to be a proof-of-concept / experimental foray into the development of software that could potentially support the concept of a hardware botnet. The project is made up of two components, PlugBot Bot, and PlugBot Command & Control. The hardware component to this project is intended to be single-board computers, such as: Raspberry Pi, Beaglebone, Cubox, etc.
Alternatively, PlugBot can be used as a vulnerability assessment or penetration testing device (bot) for covert use during physical penetration tests.
