Explore the business convenience of Wi-Fi access, how to recognize the vulnerabilities of wireless networks, and the importance of Wi-Fi penetration testing in this 12-video course, which examines the categories of threats that can compromise a Wi-Fi network. First, you will examine built-in sniffing capabilities used for penetration testing, and the process for performing a rough access point analysis. This course examines Wi-Fi hotspots, web security, and the vulnerabilities of WEP (wired equivalent privacy). This course demonstrates the process used to exploit a Wi-Fi client's vulnerabilities. You will learn how to use Powerfuzzer, an automated customizable web fuzzer, that is part of Kali Linux vulnerability analysis tools. You will learn how to perform a wireless DoS (denial of service) attack against a wireless network. You will examine bugs using the technique of Wi-Fi fuzzing, and how to exploit WPA with PSK secured Wi-Fi. Finally, you will examine the best practices for turning Wi-Fi penetration testing results into policy, security protocols, and user education programs.
