The Capital Area Cyber Security user group, hosted by AboutWeb, will be meeting Wednesday, October 21st. This meeting is titled ‘Wireless Security Weaknesses and Attack Demonstration’.
Wi-Fi is considered to be essential for providing Internet and local network connectivity to laptops and mobile devices at home, on the go, and at work to a large extent. Unfortunately, there are many weaknesses in the use of wireless that can be exploited by attackers without significant effort.
During this session, we will walk through and demonstrate attacks against Wi-Fi access points and clients including deauthentication, use of an evil portal, DNS spoofing, and obtaining victim credentials. We will also walk through how the attacks were constructed in the demonstration and discuss other possible wireless security attacks that can be conducted.
