Hacking Wireless Access Points: Cracking, Tracking, and Signal Jacking provides readers with a deeper understanding of the hacking threats that exist with mobile phones, laptops, routers, and navigation systems. In addition, applications for Bluetooth and near field communication (NFC) technology continue to multiply, with athletic shoes, heart rate monitors, fitness sensors, cameras, printers, headsets, fitness trackers, household appliances, and the number and types of wireless devices all continuing to increase dramatically. The book demonstrates a variety of ways that these vulnerabilities can be—and have been—exploited, and how the unfortunate consequences of such exploitations can be mitigated through the responsible use of technology. Explains how the wireless access points in common, everyday devices can expose us to hacks and threats Teaches how wireless access points can be hacked, also providing the techniques necessary to protect and defend data Presents concrete examples and real-world guidance on how to protect against wireless access point attacks

Sales of wireless LANs to home users and small businesses will soar this year, with products using IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) technology leading the way, according to a report by Cahners research. Worldwide, consumers will buy 7.3 million wireless LAN nodes--which include client and network hub devices--up from about 4 million last year. This third book in the "HACKING" series from Syngress is written by the SoCalFreeNet Wireless Users Group and will cover 802.11a/b/g (“Wi-Fi ) projects teaching these millions of Wi-Fi users how to "mod" and "hack" Wi-Fi access points, network cards, and antennas to run various Linux distributions and create robust Wi-Fi networks. Cahners predicts that wireless LANs next year will gain on Ethernet as the most popular home network technology. Consumers will hook up 10.9 million Ethernet nodes and 7.3 million wireless out of a total of 14.4 million home LAN nodes shipped. This book will show Wi-Fi enthusiasts and consumers of Wi-Fi LANs who want to modify their Wi-Fi hardware how to build and deploy “homebrew Wi-Fi networks, both large and small. Wireless LANs next year will gain on Ethernet as the most popular home network technology. Consumers will hook up 10.9 million Ethernet nodes and 7.3 million wireless clients out of a total of 14.4 million home LAN nodes shipped. This book will use a series of detailed, inter-related projects to teach readers how to modify their Wi-Fi hardware to increase power and performance to match that of far more expensive enterprise networking products. Also features hacks to allow mobile laptop users to actively seek wireless connections everywhere they go! The authors are all members of the San Diego Wireless Users Group, which is famous for building some of the most innovative and powerful "home brew" Wi-Fi networks in the world.

Security Smarts for the Self-Guided IT Professional Protect wireless networks against all real-world hacks by learning how hackers operate. Wireless Network Security: A Beginner's Guide discusses the many attack vectors that target wireless networks and clients--and explains how to identify and prevent them. Actual cases of attacks against WEP, WPA, and wireless clients and their defenses are included. This practical resource reveals how intruders exploit vulnerabilities and gain access to wireless networks. You'll learn how to securely deploy WPA2 wireless networks, including WPA2-Enterprise using digital certificates for authentication. The book provides techniques for dealing with wireless guest access and rogue access points. Next-generation wireless networking technologies, such as lightweight access points and cloud-based wireless solutions, are also discussed. Templates, checklists, and examples give you the hands-on help you need to get started right away. Wireless Network Security: A Beginner's Guide features: Lingo--Common security terms defined so that you’re in the know on the job IMHO--Frank and relevant opinions based on the author's years of industry experience In Actual Practice--Exceptions to the rules of security explained in real-world contexts Your Plan--Customizable checklists you can use on the job now Into Action--Tips on how, why, and when to apply new skills and techniques at work This is an excellent introduction to wireless security and their security implications. The technologies and tools are clearly presented with copious illustrations and the level of presentation will accommodate the wireless security neophyte while not boring a mid-level expert to tears. If the reader invests the time and resources in building a lab to follow along with the text, s/he will develop a solid, basic understanding of what "wireless security" is and how it can be implemented in practice. This is definitely a recommended read for its intended audience. - Richard Austin, IEEE CIPHER, IEEE Computer Society's TC on Security and Privacy (E109, July 23, 2012)
