Training course outline

The continuous growth of Wireless communications in several aspects from home connectivity to Intelligent Transport Networks (ITS) has revolutionised communications in both economically viable and efficient ways. At the same time, there is a trade-off between convenience and ease of use with security issues and the multiplication of wireless hacking tools used against the existing encryption and authentication standards. This course deals with wireless security issues with emphasis placed on the technical and structural flaws of existing and emerging wireless security standards. There is a systematic approach to attack analysis using traditional penetration testing methodologies against wireless networks for a variety of settings, implementations and protocols. Delegates are exposed to advanced wireless exploitation techniques, tools and methods with strong hands-on explications as part of the course.

What will I learn?

  • How to analyse the weaknesses in the design and architecture of wireless security standards
  • Flexibly apply tools for the exploitation of wireless communications using a variety of standards and identify ways to mitigate and harden the target networks and systems
