Applied Wireless Network Security

This course will explore the unique challenges presented by wireless networking, including the management of dual network devices (Bluetooth, 3G, 4G, and WiFi). Students will evaluate emerging business and technical initiatives, such as bring your own device (BYOD) and securely implement mobile IP networks based on IPv4, IPv6 and the 3GPP. Students will learn penetration testing strategies to effectively evaluate currently implemented security controls, utilizing cutting edge tools such as BackTrack 5, Vistumbler, Wireshark, and inSIDDer for network discovery and packet analysis. Additionally, students will be exposed to the site survey, network management and analysis capabilities of industry leading software such as Air Magnet, Ekahau and OmniPeek. Students are required to purchase an Alfa wireless adapter and acquire a wireless router for this class. This course prepares students for the Certified Wireless Security Professional (CWSP) Certification. Pre-requisites: IAE-250 and CT-240 (3-0-3)
