Summary

In this chapter, we have learned that even the wireless client is susceptible to attacks. These include the following— Honeypot and other Mis-Association attacks, Caffe Latte attack to retrieve the key from the wireless client, De-Authentication and Dis-Association attacks causing a Denial of Service, Hirte attack as an alternative to retrieving the WEP key from a roaming client, and finally cracking the WPA-Personal passphrase with just the client.

In the next chapter, we will use all our learning until now to conduct various advanced wireless attacks on both the client and infrastructure side. So, quickly flip the page to the next chapter!
