|Project Description: ||Wireless Penetration testing is a new discipline which is included within the
information security field. This new discipline is an emerging field of study. The huge
adoption of wireless technologies over recent years has placed wireless data networks as
one of the major attack vectors for organizations nowadays. Incident handlers and law
enforcement have been forced to deal with the complexity associated with these
technologies when managing and responding to security incidents. Thus, the need of new
tools for identifying the exploits and vulnerabilities in a wireless environment has
increased in the past few years.
The purpose of this project is to conduct a wireless penetration test, and analyze
the software tools needed to conduct this test in a wireless network. By implementing a
testing methodology, the project is going to address different types of security flaws that
companies face while using wireless networks. Also, some common tests are going to be
discussed. Furthermore, the methodology used by the pen-tester to deploy these tests is
going to be addressed. Finally, after analyzing all the attacks deployed in the wireless
penetration test, security countermeasures will be discussed.
