Wireless Security Assessment

Wireless Security Assessment

Assess the security risk of vulnerable wireless networks

Wireless networks are particularly vulnerable to attacks because it is extremely difficult to prevent physical access to them. Wireless networks are subject to both passive and active attacks. A passive attack is one in which an attacker just captures signals flowing from authorized devices, such as a corporate laptop to an authorized Access Point (AP). An active attack is one in which an attacker sends signals to the authorized AP in order to solicit specific responses and intrude upon the corporate network, typically, in a very short time-frame.

During the wireless assessment, Elevate will address all of the following areas and many more:

  • Discover Wireless Access Points and Work Stations.
  • Investigate rogue devices installed without IT department consent.
  • Assess WiFi RF coverage trying to sniff from adjacent buildings and public locations.
  • Determine the existing WiFi Security Infrastructure.
  • Attempt to compromise the wireless security.
  • Determine encryption type and compromise the security.
