A few months back, I took Offensive Security's online course WiFu Offensive Security Wireless Attacks (WiFu) + Offensive Security Wireless (OSWP) . start to thin out (however I have now got the PDF to use as reference to fall back on). . The course is currently on version 3, which came out in July v. PWB VPN Labs. .. 3. Module 3: Open Services Information Gathering. defend your assets, you must first understand the attacks and the attackers. Please read the Offensive Security Lab Introduction PDF before starting the labs. Multiple Apple Wireless Products FTP Port Forward Security Bypass Vulnerability. OSWP is an entry level course designed by Offensive Security (henceforth addressed as OffSec) team. This course deals with Wireless Security (Honestly speaking Wireless . 5 is that it is stable (more stable than any Kali Linux version ). What I confident about was there will be WEP and WPA attacks I.
Introduction Wireless sensor networks WSNs have emerged as a key technology for a broad spectrum of applications, ranging from weather forecasting [ 1 ] or complex industrial plant monitoring [ 2 ] to military surveillance [ 3 ]. These types of cyber-physical systems are prone to various malicious attacks which theoretically originate from three different causes: i the limited power, communication and computational resources of the nodes; ii the unattended and hostile environments where they are often deployed; and iii the open nature of the wireless transmission medium.
In order to cope with security related issues, besides already traditional approaches like message encryption or node authentication, a convenient solution arises: equipping the sensor nodes with directional antennas.
Usually, sensor nodes employ omnidirectional antennas for wireless communication due to a variety of reasons including their small size, low cost, ease of deployment, simplified transmission-related protocols, etc. With the advancements of smart antenna technology, the omnidirectional antennas may either be replaced by directional ones or can work in tandem with them on the same motes.
The advantages brought by directional antennas to WSN nodes can be seen not only in increased quality of transmissions, optimization of energy usage, decreased number of hops due to longer transmission range, but also from the security point of view. By using these two lines of defense against hostile attacks, the nodes equipped with directional antennas may identify, mitigate or even eliminate security risks when speaking about eavesdropping, jamming, wormhole attacks or Sybil attacks.
The result means there are various ways to crack WEP. Note: WPS! Looking into the history of it, I understand why it's not in the course The course is currently on version 3 , which came out in July However, about four months later, in December , as far as I can see there was the first public release of a PoC "tool" and paper to "hack" WPS. It's a bit of a shame with the timing as it didn't make it into this release of the course may do if there is a newer release of the course. Whilst on the subject: shortly after the release of the tool which most people know today, reaver , but that hasn't been updated since January last version is v1.
Side note: the WPS attack hasn't yet? These are bypass-able, and could have an "extra mile" exercise like in PWB. With WEP, there isn't any mention of "key index" how to identify which key index is being used.
However, "most" of the time, it is slot 1.
Side note: if it's not index 1, then Apple devices have a hard time connecting! I felt there isn't as much of a "self-study" element, compared to the PWB, as the course material does cover a vast amount of what you need to know as and as a result, limits the possible "extra mile" exercises. Is this course for me?
So why do this course? You may think that you know it all, and you truly might do. However, for the people that don't, or those who are missing certain areas, this is a great way to learn about wireless The course itself isn't too complex and it's short and this is reflected in the course fees.
It is also currently the cheapest course that Offsec's cheapest course on offer. There is also an exam at the end, which will give you a certificate OSWP , which is recognized professionally. What's wrong with the resources that are out there currently?
If they work for you, that's great. The aircrack-ng wiki is a manual showing how to use their tool rightly so! From what I saw from Security Tube, it might touch on more topics, however, I didn't feel that it went into the same amount of depth and I didn't like the style in which it was presented.
Kudos to both, for giving out free, descent and original content.
Summary Advice There is a chance that you will need to download some hardware for the course, so don't expect or rely on your current wireless device. If something isn't working for you, try and troubleshoot why its not.
It wireless security is a popular subject online, and the chances are, someone before you has already had the issue and found the solution. You do not need to have done any of the other Offsec courses e. There isn't any "cross over" between the courses. This could be your first security certificate, or simply just another course for you to do.
Offsec once again, starts at the start, and covers everything in a single package - including the stuff that you could have been afraid to ask. You can read the syllabus on their website, but it covers all the standard things you might encounter on a pentest, while also traversing some unknown territory for a lot of people. It dabbles in exploit development, AV evasion, along with a myriad of other tips and tricks that should help you on the job.
In the beginning, there is a fair amount of hand-holding to help you set up your environment, which does not require documentation.
It dives right in and follows common pentesting methodology, filling in the gaps with common use cases for the included tools. As the course progresses, it becomes noticeably about being independent and figuring things out for yourself. Several exercises point you in a generic direction and force you to think on your feet for a solution. Once you traverse the exploit development module, it feels sort of downhill in difficulty which may simply be a product of the challenge of exploit dev.
During the course, they have you practice on the lab network, which gives you some strong hints as to what you should do when you eventually invest all of your time in the labs. I got around to most of them, but still ran out of time with 5 or 6 left. The support for the course is quick to respond and very good about resolving issues. Any time I needed someone, I got help within a few minutes. The support team was quick to reset my box and I was able to connect again.
I only had one incident where the support team led me astray and that was when I finally caved and asked for some help on a box.
