What You Will Learn

  • Crack WEP, WPA, WPA2, WPS, EAP/Radius based wireless networks
  • Creating a practice lab for wireless penetrating testing purposes

In Detail

Wi-Fi is a popular technology that helps satisfy our need for continuous connectivity with some inherent security risks and vulnerabilities. In a society with an increasing level of discoveable Wi-Fi networks, wireless penetration testing allows you to verify whether your own networks are as secure as you'd like them to be.

Armed with the essentials, you will learn how to conduct a host of cutting edge wireless attacks. You will learn how to execute attacks such as WLAN packet sniffing, revealing hidden SSIDs, open authentication by defeating MAC address filters, bypassing shared authentication, cracking WEP and WPA/WPA2 encryption.

In addition to documenting the essentials of wireless penetration testing, we will also discuss setting up rogue APs and wireless evil twins, client-based WEP cracking attacks, wireless infrastructure-based attacks, WPS PIN brute force attacks, denial of service (DoS) attacks, eavesdropping and session hijacking, EAP-based enterprise wireless hacking; and much more. Coverage also includes various countermeasures to protect wireless networks against these types of attacks, in order to help bolster the wireless security of any given network.
