Course Description

Learn techniques to survey, collect, analyze, target, geolocate, and infiltrate 802.11 wireless targets. Students are provided a netbook computer and, through extensive hands-on labs, instructed on how to install and use all the tools necessary to create a multi-functional 802.11 wireless collection, surveillance, and infiltration platform.

All the tools and capabilities are comprised of free, open-source software available on the Internet. No proprietary or vendor-specific tools will be used.

The course culminates with a day-long exercise where students are sent as teams into the surrounding area to locate, identify, and infiltrate a target's 802.11 wireless network. The course is intended for those interested in 802.11 wireless threats, target identification, and infiltration.
