Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, and check out the list after the break!



Rtfm: Red Team Field Manual - $9.00
RTFM clearly stands for Red Team Field Manual. It's a compilation of tips and tricks for pen testers, security researchers, and security engineers that will keep them going all through a long CTF.

Sim Card Adapters / Storage + Micro SD storage + Micro SD Card Reader + Sim Release Pin in Credit Card Size - $9.95
We change phones. We change phones a lot. This kit gives you the most common tools to switch SIM cards and migrate data. Why do we switch phones so much? Don't ask.

RFID Blocking Sleeves - Black Pack of 10 Credit Card Holding Shields - $9.99
These sleeves can shield access cards and other identification from snooping. You can never be too careful. 

RUBAN 6.2 Foot Universal Security Cable For Notebook Laptop PC - $10.90
CTFs are long, travel is hard, and laptops are expensive. These locks help make sure our laptops are where we left them. 

Olympus TP-8 Telephone Pick-up Microphone - $11.70
Call recording is not legal in all states, but where it is and if you do need to passively record a conversation this device is great for it. It's a great tool to record that perfect social engineering call and play it back for training purposes.

Ninja Remote 2, Weaponized - $11.99
It's a weaponized remote that can jam other remotes and shutoff TVs all at once, what more needs to be said. Use responsibly. 

NFC tags - NTAG213 Chip - 10 Pack - $11.99
NFC tags can tell our phones to do things, like go into certain modes when our phones are at work or in the car. 

100 Round Bright Silver Hologram Sequentially Numbered Tamper Evident Security Labels/stickers - $12.50
Why do we need stickers that make fake things look authentic? The answer is in the question. 

1 X Newest USB MSR90 3 Tracks Hi-Co Magnetic Stripe Credit Card Swipe Reader - $12.98
Magstripe research is dead with the adoption of EMV (Chip and Pin). If you believe that I have a supercomputer to sell you in Australia. This device can be used to read and test most common magnetic stripe based credit and access cards.  

Looching®10pcs KLOM Padlock Shim Picks+Professional Cutaway Practice Padlock (White) - $12.99
We like to pick locks. It's almost like meditating. This kit comes with a clear lock for practice and shims which are a common pick for pad locks. 

Professional Heavy Duty Silver Hinged Police Style Handcuffs- $13.91
No, they are not for the bedroom (unless you are into that kind of thing). They are for practicing escaping handcuffs using shims and other techniques. Security people are weird. I know.

BePuzzled Hanayama - Twist $14.93
We like puzzles. 'Nuff said.

Red Team: How to Succeed By Thinking Like the Enemy - $17.41
Great book detailing different professional hacking, pen testing, and research teams. It discusses how the Red Team philosophy can be used everyday.

Visual Guide to Lock Picking (Third Edition) - $18.82
Again, we like lock picking. Locks are little puzzle we can use to gain access to things we shouldn't have access to. What's not to like?

Winbag 15730 Air Wedge Alignment Tool, Inflatable Shim - $19.95
Specialty lock picking tool: This can be used to access cars via the window and all manner of bypass techniques that require "just a little shove".

Lindy USB Port Blocker - Pack of 4, Blue (40452) - $22.95
Unprotected USB ports are bad, mmkay. These little stoppers are a deterrent from just anyone shoving anything in our USB ports. We don't like that.

ZeusGard: Secure Hardware Browser - $24.95  and ZeusGard WiFi Adapter - $14.95
This one is a two-fer: You really should buy both together. A hardware browser is a read-only environment that boots from a standard PC allowing access to the Internet. Viruses cannot write to it because it's read only and it saves no information when powered off. They great for accessing the Internet on untrusted computers.

Looching® Lock Opener Padlock Tools Locksmith Tools Lock Tool Sets - $28.99
A basic cheap lock picking starter kit. If the security nerd/hacker in your life doesn't pick locks yet this is a good cheap place to start.

Enfain 8GB (10 Pack) USB 2.0 Flash Drive Jump Drive Pen Drive Memory Stick, Black - $29.99
We need stacks of identical USB drives for reasons. Good reasons. Reasons that get left in parking lots and lobbies as part of authorized penetration test reasons.

3M Privacy Filter for Apple MacBook Pro 15-inch with Retina display (PFMR15) - 32.58 
Privacy filter that keeps prying eyes off our laptop screens. Check to make sure you have the correct size for the recipients laptop.

Dekart SIM Card Reader for Windows PC - $33
Ever watch any procedural crime show where they call in the "Tech Team" to retrieve text messages from the perps phone? This is the tool that helps them with that process. It's also good for backing up data on a mobile phone SIM card 

RFID Blocking Leather Wallet - $36.99
A nice leather wallet that blocks RFID signals to protect snooping on RFID enabled cards and IDs.

Mil-Tec Military Army Patrol Molle Assault Pack Tactical Combat Rucksack Backpack Bag 36L Black - $45.88
It's the backpack from Mr. Robot. If you don't know what that is, the person you are giving it to likely does. If they don't, frankly, buy them Season 1 of Mr. Robot. This backpack can hold all your security gear.

YubiKey NEO - $50.00
Sweet tasty two factor authentication that can be used on your NFC enable mobile phone or computer. Two factor authentication combines something you know (a password) and another factor like something you have. In this case the second factor is a secure USB device.

Amazon.com Gift Card - $50 (Gift Box Reveal) - $50
Why an Amazon gift card? Just put a note on the card that says, "Use this to buy a year of Private Internet Access via VPN". They will handle the rest.

Keyllama 4MB USB Value Keylogger - $59.99
Another great pen testing tool. A keylogger captures everything typed on a keyboard. Again, only to be used when authorized.

CanaKit Raspberry Pi 2 Complete Starter Kit with WiFi - $69.99
A complete sub $100 Linux PC (Just add KVM) that can run everything from Kali Linux to RetroPi Arcades. Yes, please.

Streamlight 88704 Super TAC IR Long Range Infrared Active Illuminator - $86.14
I could give you a long winded answer for this, instead: It blinds most security cameras. There, I said it.

Motorola Moto E (2nd Generation) - Black - 8 GB - Global GSM Unlocked Phone - $89.99
We love burner phones. We change phones a lot. Again, for reasons. This is a fully unlocked GSM phone. Just shove in SIM and go.

Happy Holidays!
