      IoT protocols have been proposed to replace wired systems in aircraft to support telemetry applications. They offer several advantages to wired systems due to them being wireless, low cost, and consuming less power. However, the one consideration that is often overlooked is the security of these wireless protocols. This project focused on investigating the use of open source hardware and software frameworks to create a wireless testbed to conduct penetration testing of the ZigBee protocol. To accomplish this task, the open source XBee software library was used to implement the ZigBee Network and Application Layers within the GNU Radio IDE. The XBee hardware module was leveraged for the IEEE 802.15.4 PHY and MAC Layers.
