Welcome to my course on Wireless Penetration Testing with Kali Linux & Raspberry Pi!
In this course, you will start as a beginner with no previous knowledge about penetration testing or hacking.
This course is focused on the practical side of penetration testing without neglecting the theory behind each attack. Before jumping into penetration testing, you will first learn how to set up a lab and install needed software to practice penetration testing on your own machine.
Once you understand how wireless networks are working, we will discuss about how these can be exploited by hackers and what we can do to protect them. This course will take you from a beginner to a more advanced level -- by the time you will complete the course, you will be able to identify the hacking attacks against your network and take the necessary steps to protect it. We will use the same tools that hackers are using in order to protect our networks. All the attacks explained in this course are launched against real devices in my lab.
The course is divided into two main sections:
In the first section, we will discuss about installing the penetration tools on our Raspberry Pi device. In case you don’t want to use a Raspberry Pi, I will explain how to install the pen tools on a virtual machine on your PC or Mac. Next we’ll talk about setting up the wireless adapter and prepare for the actual hack.
In the second section, we will take a look at several hacking attacks and ways to protect our network from these attacks. The hacking attacks are so powerful that they can disrupt our network or compromise it at high level. Topics like bypassing MAC address filtering, shared key authentication, WEP and WAP will be presented step by step.
The course will be completed with a discussion about the techniques that hackers are using to penetrate wireless networks and what we can do to stop them.
This course is an excellent introduction to Network and Systems security. We will use a Raspberry Pi device throughout this course but you can also follow along by installing Kali Linux on your computer, a process described in the course also.
Ever wanted to know how hackers are breaking into your network and what you can do to stop them? Then this course is for you!
We will play the role of a Pen Tester or White Hat Hacker in order to discover network and system vulnerabilities and then see how we can protect against them.
Scan your network for vulnerabilities before hackers are taking action against your system!
Learn how to protect against common vulnerabilities that are present in Operating Systems and how to better understand how Computer Security works.
Don't be caught off-guard and protect your network before hackers discovers the vulnerabilities in your system.
Take action today!
NOTE: This course is created for educational purposes only and all the attacks are launched in my own lab or against devices that I have permission to test.
