Types of attack

There are many integrity control attacks, and all are very effective when used by a skilled and practiced hand. The ones covered within the pages of this chapter represent some of the most effective and popular methods that can be deployed on and against wireless networks and their client devices.

Before we start exploring each one of our attacks, let's first lay out the attacks that will be covered in this chapter:

  • Sniffing
  • Data replays
  • Packet injections
  • Detection of beacon frames
  • Spoofing of beacon frames

Remember these are just a few of the types of attacks that can be used to subvert the integrity of a wireless network; they should never be considered the only types of attacks.
