Tempestbuntu uses your computer monitor to send out AM radio signals which you can hear through your radio. Erik Thiele provided the software “tempest_for_eliza” which is used for this distribution. Once booted, your screen will display certain black and white patterns. Those are programmed in a peculiar way. If you tune an AM radio into the 10Mhz range and put it close to the monitor, you’ll be able to hear some music.
Tempestbuntu is suited for educational purposes and to showcase potential security threats caused by electromagnetic information leaks.
