Ever since the advent of wireless networks in the late 90s, users have believed these networks to be a secure solution for sharing all kinds of data, but this is rarely the case. Wireless networks are as prone to an attack as any other public asset on the internet. In this course, you will learn the techniques required to perform ethical hacker/penetration tester tasks from a WiFi hacker’s perspective. Generally no prior knowledge for this course is required is required, but if you know some basics of Linux commands, that might come beneficial when taking this course.
The course covers the entire ethical hacking process. The first series of courses allows the student to understand what a WiFi network is and how it works from a technical stand point, as well as the associated weaknesses it comes with.
Further, we shall discuss different exploitation techniques, both common and uncommon, that someone with the intent of hacking might use. We will also demonstrate on how to find and exploit such problems. The course also covers the possible difficulties that an ethical hacker may encounter when trying to hack specific levels of WiFi encryption, along with the solution to tackling these problems.
Finally, the course ends with different tools and methods that can be used to break the encryption keys to ensure the greatest likelihood of success.
What’s in it for you?
Once you have successfully completed this course, you w a computer network works. You will also gain a clear understanding of hacker’s methodology along with insight into the wireless network protocols and how to penetrate them successfully. You will be able to determine the secret password used by WEP, WPA, and WPA2 networks and the technique to change your MAC address and impersonate other devices on a wireless network. This course will also help you understand the working knowledge of using basic Linux commands.
Who should enroll?
Anyone who has interest in understanding the vulnerabilities in wireless security standards such as WEP, WPA, and WPA2 and wants to learn how to conduct wireless network hacking for penetration tests should take this course.
