Tackle Wireless LAN security in this course that teaches the essential concepts and protocols from the inside out. Learn about 802.11 frame formats and transmission protocols in order to gain an understanding of where vulnerabilities might lie, and then apply that knowledge to WLAN security design concepts that make life difficult for hackers at every turn.
In addition to learning the intricacies of the 802.11 standard, WPA/WPA2, and 802.11i, you will build a secure WLAN from the ground up. You will configure and crack a series of security methods during hands-on lab exercises before a robust WPA2 Enterprise network emerges at the end of the week. You will learn to use a variety of professional grade analysis tools and open source attack tools as you test different wireless security protocols.
