SEC617 will give you the skills you need to understand the security strengths and weaknesses in wireless systems. In this course, you will learn how to evaluate the ever-present cacophony of Wi-Fi networks and identify the Wi-Fi access points and client devices that threaten your organization; assess, attack, and exploit deficiencies in modern Wi-Fi deployments using WPA2 technology, including sophisticated WPA2-Enterprise networks; use your understanding of the many weaknesses in Wi-Fi protocols and apply it to modern wireless systems; and identify and attack Wi-Fi access points and exploit the behavioral differences in how client devices scan for, identify, and select access points.
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 SEC617, 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. Given the known risks of insecure wireless technologies and the attacks used against them, SEC617 was designed to help people build the vital skills needed to identify, evaluate, assess, and defend against these threats. These skills are 'must-have' for any high-performing security organization.
