This ethical hacking course walks beginners, computer science students, or cybersecurity professionals through advanced Wi-Fi hacking techniques using a cheap and easy to find microcontroller, the ESP8266. You can easily find these boards on websites like Amazon and Aliexpress.
To get started hacking Wi-Fi, it's usually necessary to have a wireless network adapter that supports the kind of attacks hackers use. Cheap and easy to find development boards based on the ESP8266 offer an alternative to this, and can be pre-programmed with a framework supporting advanced Wi-Fi attacks.
Using the Wi-Fi Deauther loaded on this $5 microcontroller, we'll learn to scan and identify Wi-Fi devices, create fake networks, jam network connections, and even learn where nearby devices have been.
We'll also practice advanced Wi-Fi hacking techniques to defeat privacy measures built into modern smart Wi-Fi devices. This includes revealing the true MAC address of devices using MAC address randomization, forcing a smart device to connect to a rouge network from a safe one, and serving a basic phishing page to captured devices.
For red teams, penetration testers, or anyone wanting to get into Wi-Fi hacking on a budget, this class will teach both basic and advanced techniques for Wi-Fi signals intelligence and hacking.
