Applied Network Security

Overview of this book

Computer networks are increasing at an exponential rate and the most challenging factor organisations are currently facing is network security. Breaching a network is not considered an ingenious effort anymore, so it is very important to gain expertise in securing your network. The book begins by showing you how to identify malicious network behaviour and improve your wireless security. We will teach you what network sniffing is, the various tools associated with it, and how to scan for vulnerable wireless networks. Then we’ll show you how attackers hide the payloads and bypass the victim’s antivirus. Furthermore, we’ll teach you how to spoof IP / MAC address and perform an SQL injection attack and prevent it on your website. We will create an evil twin and demonstrate how to intercept network traffic. Later, you will get familiar with Shodan and Intrusion Detection and will explore the features and tools associated with it. Toward the end, we cover tools such as Yardstick, Ubertooth, Wifi Pineapple, and Alfa used for wireless penetration testing and auditing. This book will show the tools and platform to ethically hack your own network whether it is for your business or for your personal home Wi-Fi.

Advance Wireless Security Lab Using the Wi-Fi Pineapple Nano/Tetra

As we explore deep into the world of wireless technology, you will find it to be much more vast and complex than it may seem as it pushes us to focus especially on the security measures and the protection of the end user's data. We will take a short look into the history leading to what standard Wi-Fi has become today. Next, you'll focus on learning the fundamentals of 802.11 and the hardware, protocols, functions, and most recent components to build extensively on your knowledge with the layer 3 devices. Once you know how it works, our shift can now revolve into the vulnerabilities associated. The following topic will we be about various advanced wireless security device: the Wi-fi Pineapple Tetra and Nano, The Ubertooth, and the YardstickOne RF. This will lead to a better understanding the details regarding the radio frequency communication...
