BackTrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner's Guide
Posted on 15 September 2011.
Wireless technologies are inherently insecure and can be easily broken. BackTrack is a penetration testing and security auditing distribution that comes with a myriad of wireless networking tools used to simulate network attacks and detect security loopholes.


Backtrack 5 Wireless Penetration Testing Beginner’s Guide will teach you various wireless testing methodologies taught using live examples, which you will implement throughout this book.

The engaging practical sessions very gradually grow in complexity giving you enough time to ramp up before you get to advanced wireless attacks.

This book will take you through the basic concepts in wireless and creating a lab environment for your experiments to the business of different lab sessions in wireless security basics, slowly turn on the heat and move to more complicated scenarios, and finally end your journey by conducting bleeding edge wireless attacks in your lab.

There are many interesting and new things that you will learn in this book – War driving, WLAN packet sniffing, network scanning, circumventing hidden SSIDs and MAC filters, bypassing shared authentication, cracking WEP and WPA/WPA2 encryption, access point MAC spoofing, rogue devices, evil twins, Denial of Service attacks, viral SSIDs, honeypot and hotspot attacks, Man-in-the-Middle attacks, and a bunch of other cutting edge wireless attacks.
