Description

Welcome! 


My name is Jacob and I'm happy to share with you my How to Hack WiFi Networks for Beginners + Basic WiFi Theory course. This is my first course with Udemy & hopefully one of many. My experience is 6 years of exploiting simple and complex communication systems, networks and machines. This experience is a mix of self taught and training through external private companies. Some of my qualifications include, Diploma in Information Technology, SANS SEC617 Wireless Penetration Testing and Ethical Hacking and currently studying a Masters Degree in Cyber Security.


This course will cover everything you need to get started on your WiFi hacking journey. I'll show you:


  • Basic WiFi theory so you have a general understanding of the technology before exploiting it

    - This includes Wifi releases, bands, a general overview, basic terminology, how encryption works & how exploit it as well as a free cheat sheet for you to download and reference back to.

  • How to download and install Kali Linux + Virtual Box

  • How to set up your wireless card - side note: you will need to purchase a wireless card for use in this course!

  • Basic Linux commands and navigating through linux

  • Performing Deauth attacks

  • How to crack WPA and WPA2 passwords

  • Cracking passwords using WPS

  • Finding hidden wireless networks

  • Open source tools such as Reaver, Crunch and Wifite

  • Creating your own evil twin access point

Videos will be recorded as a follow along, so everything that you need to do, you'll visually see myself doing on the screen.


I hope you enjoy the course, if you have any questions please do ask! I'll aim to get back to them as soon as possible.


Thank you!

Who this course is for:

  • Beginner users wishing to learn how to use Kali Linux, gain knowledge on WiFi and exploit networks
