In this workshop, you will learn (1) how to build an exploitable WiFi environment for your classroom, (2) how Raspberry Pis can be used to act as the necessary clients for your access points, and (3) how to hack such access points. You will also have access to all of the Raspberry Pi scripts and access point configuration directions. Then, you will get a chance to hack up to four WEP access points as well as a WPA2 access point. Note: Participants must have a laptop with VirtualBox installed and an available USB port. Before the workshop, you will be provided a link to download and import a tested Kali VM to participate in the hands-on hacking activity.

Equipment Required. Participants must bring a laptop or equipment.

Abstract

With the widespread of WiFi nowadays, it is important to show students how WiFi access points can be exploited in practice. The theory behind exploiting WEP and WPA2 has been available for a number of years. However, it has not been easy to offer students the opportunity to apply these theories in a real environment. In this workshop, you will learn how to build and configure WiFi access points for your students to hack. You will learn how Raspberry Pis can be used to act as the necessary clients for those access points and you will have access to the Raspberry Pi scripts and all access point configuration directions. Then, we will discuss the different hacking scenarios where WEP access points have connected clients versus no connected clients. In addition, you will get a chance to hack up to four WEP access points in addition to a WPA2 access point. Note: Participants must have a laptop with VirtualBox (version 5.1.28 recommended) installed and an available USB port.
