    Default Wireless Security 101 - a paper I wrote for school. Could be helpful

    Hey everyone -

    I've been a long time lurker and figured I should try to contribute something. This is a paper I wrote for school on wireless security. I was a complete noob and wanted to learn all that I could about cracking wireless networks.

    If you want a quick and dirty introduction to the world of wireless security and how to use Backtrack for testing purposes, give this paper a read.

    The topics include:
    -Active vs Passive Scanning of wireless networks
    -Cracking WEP and WPA
    -ARP Spoofing
    -Man in the Middle Attacks including SSL Stripping.

    I tried to explain not only how to do the things above, but how they work. I certainly learned alot and hope that somebody else out there gets something from this.

    Feedback definitely appreciated! I will try to help out also anyway I can if you have any questions. I plan on adding to it as I learn new things, so suggestions are welcome too.

    subnet is 10.0.0.1-255.
    This is quite impossible
    Perhaps you mean 255.255.255.0?

    Really nice and detailed paper further on, easy to read. Kudos

    Just skimmed it, but will be reading it thoroughly over the next few days. Well written & researched paper...my hat's off to you
    If I could figure out how to scuba dive & hack at the same time, there would be nothing I couldn't do...

    Mitm attacks are not related to wireless security, but I understand why you would include that. I'll give it a better read when I have the time
    Running both KDE and GNOME BT5 flawlessly. Thank you !

    I also briefly skimmed the text. A couple of things I think worth mentioning are defeating defenses such as hiding the SSID and MAC address filtering. You could mention that tools such as kismet and airodump-ng are capable of detecting hidden SSIDs and capturing whitelisted MAC addresses. You can give an example of spoofing a MAC address to gain access to an access point that uses MAC address filtering.
