Summary

In this chapter, we have explored the following ways to compromise the security of the Wireless LAN infrastructure:

  • Compromising default accounts and credentials on access points
  • Denial of service attacks
  • Evil twins and MAC spoofing
  • Rogue access points in the enterprise network

In the next chapter, we will look at different attacks on the Wireless LAN client. Interestingly, most administrators feel the client has no security problems to worry about. We will see how nothing could be farther away from the truth.
