Scan, exploit, and crack wireless networks by using the most advanced techniques from security professionals
Penetration testing is a tool for testing computer systems, networks, or web applications to find vulnerabilities that an attacker could exploit. By performing a penetration test, you can proactively identify which vulnerabilities are most critical. This allows your organization to more intelligently prioritize remediation and apply necessary security patches to ensure that they are available.
This book covers how to set up Kali Linux, scan and sniff wireless networks, and crack WEP, WPA, and even WPA2 encryption. By the end of this book, you will feel much more confident when it comes to conducting wireless penetration tests, and you will have a full understanding of wireless security threats.
This book is full of hands-on demonstrations and how-to tutorials. This will benefit you, as the reader, when it comes to security awareness. Having some knowledge of wireless penetration testing would be helpful.
