Let’s talk about hacking.
In this article, I am going to discuss the introductory methodology behind penetration testing a wireless network, utilizing Kali Linux. I am also going to discuss the concept of fuzzing, and other methods that can be utilized to introduce you to wireless network security.
Wireless networking is a technology that is still in its infancy; and never has this technology been more vulnerable to penetration testing than it currently is today. The current IEEE 802.11 wireless LAN technology that we utilize allows attackers (and information security specialists) to proceed with a myriad of methods and tools that can be utilized against the technology to gain unauthorized access to the wireless network. With the level of ease, and the tools that are readily available, attacking a wireless network can be performed by just about anyone with an above-average understanding of networking and information technology. It is for that reason alone that we must properly configure and prepare our networks against attacks of this nature.
However, before we get into that, we need to cover some highly important ground rules.
This website covers many different topics related to information security, ethical hacking and intelligence gathering. Often times, the articles within this website will utilize common penetration tools that are readily available to the public. However, this does not mean that the tools are legal to use in a majority of the given scenarios. Utilizing any of the articles, tutorials or methodology within this website on a system that you do not have permission to penetration test against is illegal. If you choose to utilize this information maliciously – you are on your own. I, nor anyone else associated with this website, will be liable or held responsible for any of the illegal decisions you decide to make, utilizing the methodology and tools that are described within the articles on this website.
