How To Perform A Successful Wireless Penetration Test

Endpoint Protection - Symantec Enterprise

Wireless is here to stay and becoming more and more pervasive. The most famous case is the TJ Maxx case. Hackers broke in and stole records: which included millions of credit card numbers. The TJ Maxx security breach was many years ago when Wi-Fi security options were fewer and much weaker. In a nutshell, there is a well-known vulnerability in the WEP protocol and because TJ Maxx was ignorant of that fact, or overlooked it, they negatively affected their financial situation and their reputation.

Wireless Penetration Testing

This is the first of a three part series on penetration testing for wireless networks. This installment will detail many common styles of attacks against wireless networks, introduce WEP key-cracking, and then discuss some recent developments in wireless security. Part two of this series will explain the WEP key-cracking process in detail, review standard port scanning techniques, and then explain how to identify and exploit vulnerabilities. The third installment will discuss mitigating strategies to protect your wireless network. Wireless systems are particularly susceptible to DoS attacks because of the way different layers of the OSI stack interact with one another.
The term WiFi refers to wireless network technology that uses radio waves to establish wireless network connections. Due to the nature of WiFi and its methods for providing network access, malicious hackers often choose to penetrate a company by compromising its WiFi network and corresponding infrastructure devices. Homes are also at risk, especially due to the rise of IoT connected devices and appliances. Wireless penetration testing is comprised of six main steps including reconnaissance, identifying wireless networks, vulnerability research, exploitation, reporting, and remediation. These tests are performed primarily to maintain secure software code development throughout its lifecycle.
