Description

Exploiting wireless networks is one of the most effective ways to get access to the internal network of a company. It usually gives you the same level of access as regular employees at the office, and WiFi networks can usually be accessed from outside of the building. In this course, Initial Access with Aircrack-ng, we explore the Aircrack-ng WiFi security assessment tool. First, you will see how to identify potential target networks and exploit vulnerabilities in both WEP and WPA/WPA2 protocols. Then, you will learn how to crack the passwords for WEP networks and how to brute force credentials for networks. Finally, you will discover how to cause denial of service in the WiFi network, which can be a good distraction mechanism for a bigger attack. By the end of this course, you will be able to protect your networks with three important tactics from the Mittre Att&ck framework: WiFi Access Points (Initial Access - T1465), Brute Force (Credential Access - T1110), and Denial of Service (Impact - T1464).

Tool Introduction
Hey there, welcome to Pluralsight. In this cybersecurity tools course, we explore how to get initial access to a wireless networks using aircrack‑ng. As a red team specialist, one of your first tasks is to get access to the client network. One very effective way of doing that is trying to get into the corporate Wi‑Fi, so then you'll be able to reach the internal servers. And that's exactly where aircrack‑ng can help you. With aircrack‑ng, you'll be able to identify the targeted wireless networks in the environment and crack the password of those networks, giving you access to the internal servers of the company. Whether you're trying to exploit a Wi‑Fi network on a writing engagement or just looking to test the wireless networks of your own company, join me in learning how to get initial access to a wireless networks using aircrack‑ng, here at Pluralsight.
