by Stijn Huyghe - Educational Consultant - Telindus High-Tech Institute - Wednesday, 3 March 2004.
This article describes how one can setup and perform a small wireless demonstration that is quick and easy to perform with a good visual result to trigger the attention of your co-workers. The goal of the setup is to demonstrate a well-known WEP vulnerability. In order to demonstrate the WEP vulnerability, we will use the OpenBSD operating system. You donít need any prior OpenBSD knowledge, all the information you need is in here.

Note: for this demonstration, you do not need hours of traffic capturing. It can all be done within 30 minutes (maximum).
