Wireless Networks: Security Threats and Attacks


Introduction

This two-day workshop is a hands-on practical laboratory designed to demonstrate the vulnerabilities of wireless and mobile networks and to implement various active and passive attacks in order to carry out penetration tests on these systems. The laboratory makes use of the power and flexibility of a suite of wireless tools used to illustrate wireless insecurity, and focuses on understanding the inner workings, tools and methodologies of modern day attacks to find out how to best protect yourself and your organisation.

Audience Profile

The program is designed for in-house presentation to groups. It is designed to be used both for initial induction and also for periodic security refresher training.

Outcomes

This workshop will commence by examining the characteristics of the different wireless and mobile networks including Bluetooth and other WPANs, Android, and IEEE802.11 variants of WLANs. The manner in which these networks can be compromised by attacks such as, sniffing, spyware, spoofing, hijacking, man-in-the-middle, buffer overflow, injection, brute force, denial of service (as well as the usual range of viruses, worms and Trojans) will be discussed.
