Thinking out-of-the-box is encouraged in SEC, and the course has a lot of personal experiences shared by the instructor. SEC provides knowledge and training I can use immediately to help me be the best penetration tester I can. This course is designed for professionals seeking a comprehensive technical ability to understand, analyze, and defend the various wireless technologies that have become ubiquitous in our environments and, increasingly, key entrance points for attackers. The authors of SEC, as penetration testers themselves, know that many organizations overlook wireless security as an attack surface, and therefore fail to establish required defenses and monitoring, even though wireless technologies are now commonplace in executive suites, financial departments, government offices, manufacturing production lines, retail networks, medical devices, and air traffic control systems.
Attackers have increasing interest in compromising corporate networks and gaining footholds within internal environments. Engineers find and map wireless networks with We attempt to identify SSIDs including cloaked , encryption protocols, and authentication methods. NuHarbor evaluates the security of your access point deployment. Our engineers check configurations, credentials, and encryptions. We verify AP isolation and investigate the remote management of the devices. Additionally, our testing engineers validate the configurations of your captive portals, VLAN, and hardware.
Your W-LAN is still reachable far beyond the borders of your company premises and thus offers a particularly broad attack area. A single running access point, forgotten in a cabinet, runs with an obsolete, vulnerable firmware version. A poorly configured guest W-LAN or a rogue access point created by a co-worker can be the incentive gateway to your intranet for attackers. Clients such as notebooks and mobile phones connect themselves in good faith with WIFIs deployed by attackers and reveal their secrets. These and similar scenarios are tested and identified as part of our wireless penetration test.
Kali Linux is an open source distribution based on Debian focused on providing penetration testing and security auditing tools. It includes numerous security-hacker tools for information gathering, vulnerability analysis, wireless attacks, web applications, exploitation tools, stress testing, forensic tools, sniffing and spoofing, password cracking, reverse engineering, hardware hacking and much more. It allows you to discover active hosts within any network, and acquire other information such as open ports relevant to penetration testing. Ready to unleash the power of Nmap?
