In this chapter, we learned about wireless frames and how to obtain information such as SSID, BSSID, and the channel number from the wireless frame, using the Python script and the scapy library. We also learned how to get a wireless device connected to AP. After information gathering, we proceeded to wireless attacks. The first attack we discussed was the deauth attack, which is similar to a Wi-Fi jammer. In this attack, you have to attack the wireless device and see the reaction of AP or the intrusion-detection system. The next attack we discussed was the MAC-flooding attack, which is based on the logic of the CAM table, where you check whether port security is present or not.

In the next chapter, you will learn about foot printing of a web server. You will also learn how to obtain the header of HTTP and banner grabbing.
