Module Overview
The heart of the Internet is mainly based on fiber optics devices and packet routers to carry and route a huge amount of data between countries and continents. However, at the last mile of the Internet, the common method for users to access and share information is to utilize wireless networks. Such networks include both mobile cellular networks and Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) networks. Wi-Fi is used in almost all locations such as homes, offices, malls, coffee shops, and airports. This extensive use of wireless networks brings many threats to Confidentiality, Integrity, and Availability (CIA) of information. In this module, we learn the basics of wireless networks and then we show principal attacks on a wireless network involving the three components of the CIA triads. Attacks to be explained and demonstrated in class include: Man in the middle attack using ARP spoofing. Attacks to capture login credentials, bypass SSL certificates, and steel cookies. Injecting keylogger and html files into the target web page . Attacks to create fake browser updates to to hack into the client computer. We will cover some WiFi protection techniques including how to detect ARP spoofing and prevent ARP table poisoning , and how to detect and kill Meterpreter sessions.

Learning Outcome
The understanding of this material will allow the user or the administrator to build countermeasures in order to protect the wireless network.

Who should attend
This module is useful, whether attendees are engineers, scientists, or standard computer users, in helping to keep the public aware of recent cyber threats and protecting their data while using computers and communication devices.
