Black Hat USA 2014: Something in the Air

Today's quartet of Black Hat 2014 Training highlights delve into the wide world of wireless hacking.

We start off from a defensive posture with Foundstone's Ultimate Hacking: Wireless. Sure, your org's got an authorized wireless infrastructure, but what about the wireless networks that aren't supposed to be there? The "temporary" access point that's still there months later? That AP brought in by a passing contractor? All are possible attack points. This Training aims to help you see WiFi networks like hackers do, which will give you the knowledge you need to defend against WiFi hackers' increasingly sophisticated tools, techniques, and methods. 

A case in point might be someone with the knowledge offered in our next highlighted Training, Hacking by Numbers Reloaded: Wireless Bootcamp. Starting from the basics, you'll learn the standard techniques Sensepost's analysts use in their wireless engagements, eventually working your way up to bleeding-edge research. Expect theory, practical exercises, and a lot of hands-on WiFi hacking. WPA won't know what hit it. 

Looking beyond WiFi, software-defined radio is an idea whose time has finally come. The aptly named Training Software Defined Radio will bring you up to speed on this brave new world of freeform radio with the help of a shiny new HackRF One SDR radio transceiver, yours to keep. Or for another approach to the topic check out Radio Exploitation, which will show you how to intercept, demodulate, decode, and reverse engineer RF signals, as well as exploit vulnerabilities in RF systems. WiFi too passé? Check out these waveforms! 

Ready to register? Early-bird rates are available until June 2. Please visit Black Hat USA 2014's registration page to get started.
