Advanced Wi-Fi Attack and Defense for Hackers and Pentesters

Aircrack-NG and Pentester Academy | July 30-31 & August 1-2


The authors of Aircrack-NG (most popular tool for Wi-Fi Pentesting) and the best selling book "Kali / Backtrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing" (sold over 14,000+ copies worldwide) have teamed up to create this absolutely advanced course on Wireless Pentesting!

A non-exhaustive list of topics to be taught includes:

  • Bypassing WLAN Authentication - Shared Key, MAC Filtering, Hidden SSIDs
  • Cracking WLAN Encryption - WEP, WPA/WPA2 Personal and Enterprise, Understanding encryption based flaws (WEP,TKIP,CCMP)
  • Attacking the WLAN Infrastructure - Rogues Devices, Evil Twins, DoS Attacks, MITM, Wi-Fi Protected Setup
  • Advanced Enterprise Attacks - 802.1x, EAP, LEAP, PEAP, EAP-TTLS
  • Attacking the Wireless Client - Honeypots and Hotspot attacks, Caffe-Latte, Hirte, Ad-Hoc Networks and Viral SSIDs, WiFishing
  • Breaking into the Client - Metasploit, SET, Social Engineering
  • Enterprise Wi-Fi Worms, Backdoors and Botnets
  • Scripting Wi-Fi Attack Tools with Python and Scapy (includes Attack Automation)
  • Custom Firmware Attacks - Reversing and Backdooring router firmware
  • Spectrum Analysis, Card Selection and Hardware theory (antenna, cables, calculating loss, etc)
  • How to generate complex wordlists for cracking
  • High performance cracking (Hashcat, Amazon GPU cloud mostly)
  • Wireless reconnaissance and WiFi direction finding
  • WiFi Capture on different OSes
  • Checklists and cheatsheets for conducting a Wi-Fi pentest
