The net has cracks and crackers are among us. With all the news of security failures, it can be a challenge to know what is FUD and what is really at risk and to what extent. This session isn’t about hacking an application together nor is it about coding a solution. It is about looking at the network and network infrastructure and understanding some of its weaknesses. This workshop is a 50% mix of lecture / discussion and hands on attacking in order to best understand the challenges.
The labs will require the use of: - a virtual machine with BackTrack 5 - a wifi adaptor - and a laptop.
We will have ISO installations of BackTrack 5 for you to install on your VM. It is best if you have this pre-installed, it can be downloaded at http://www.backtrack-linux.org/ . In order to run backtrack, you will want to install this to a virtual machine, if this is new to you, pick up virtualbox or vmware.
The wifi adaptor needed is an Alfa AWUS036H or Alfa AWUS036NHA. You will need 1 of these external adaptors. There are ~ $30 at amazon.
Through the labs we will: - Disassociate wireless traffic - Crack a WEP key - Learn to break through a WPA device - Scan for open ports
