What you’ll learn
- Perform WiFi assessments based on commonly known vulnerabilities, exploits and hacking methods
Gain a better understanding into the world of ethical hacking
Better understand signal frequency
- The basics of using Linux based operating systems
This course aims to teach student’s how to perform tasks of an ethical hacker/penetration tester specifically from a WiFi hacking perspective. Little to no prior knowledge is required for this course, however knowing a few Linux commands would be beneficial. The course covers the entire process of WiFi based ethical hacking from a professional penetration testers point of view.
The first set of lectures allows the student to understand what WiFi is and how it works from a technical perspective as well as it’s history and associated weaknesses.
The course then looks into the various exploitation techniques a hacker would use and accompanies detailed demonstrations of how to find and exploit such issues. The course also covers potential pitfalls that an ethical hacker may encounter when trying to hack specific encryption levels of WiFi as well as how to combat such issues.
Finally the course concludes with different tools and methods that can be used to break encryption keys to ensure the greatest likelihood of success.
