Defcon 27 Wi-Fi workshops

Stumbled across some interesting workshops, this especially caught my eye hacking by Philippe Delteil,
the very mention of WPA2 Enterprise perks my interest.

Kali Linux is still the tool of choice and no encryption suite seems to be off limits. I see collecting Data is still a thing, so more reasons not to put your password in plian sight.

Here are the Workshops

Title: Hacking Wifi
Instructor: Philippe Delteil
Abstract: Wireless Networks (Wifi) are the most used type of network nowadays and most people don’t know really how vulnerable they are, even WPA/WPA2 Enterprise.

In this workshop we will cover most wifi encryptions being used today, how they work behind the scenes and the theory of the cracking process. Also, you will be able to apply this knowledge on the spot with some real-life-scenario wifi networks.

Second workshop

Here is the description scarped from https://forum.defcon.org/node/228536

Title: Advanced Wireless Exploitation for Red Team and Blue Team

Instructor: Besim Altinok & Bahtiyar Bircan

Abstract: In this workshop, participants will be informed about attacks and defense of the wireless networks. Attendees will learn how to attack and gain access to WPA2-PSK and WPA2-Enterprise wifi networks, bypass network access controls, and gain administrative control over an Active Directory environment.

In addition, Attendees will learn to fight against WiFi Pineapple, KARMA attack and fake access point opening techniques and will develop tools with Scapy. At the end of all this will be an award-winning CTF 🙂

Areas of focus include:
Basically communication for wifi networks
Understanding how monitor mode works
Collect WiFi data
Gain access to WPA2-PSK and WPA2-Enterprise networks
How can we fight against wifi hackers?
How can I improve the WiFi hacking tool?
