1 page

This module will explain which security mechanisms can be used to mitigate attacks that target the Physical Layer in the OSI Model.

Section 3: Datalink Layer Attacks - Wired

00:53

A step-by-step approach on how to spoof the MAC address.

02:09

This section will deal with MAC Flooding. This is nothing but targeting a Network switch and manipulating its functionality to make it act as a hub by sending it a large number of data packets from different forged MAC addresses.

00:48

A step-by-step approach to performing a MAC Flooding Attack.

01:59

The Address Resolution Protocol Table is used to maintain a correlation between each MAC address and its corresponding IP address. When this table is poisoned such that all traffic from a system is redirected to that of an attacker it is called ARP Poisoning.

01:27

Step by step approach to performing an ARP Poisoning Attack.

02:05

This session explains about DNS Spoofing. This is the method of poisoning the victim and redirecting the victim’s requests for a legitimate Domain to a fake.

01:33

Practice performing a DNS Spoofing Attack.

02:36

DHCP Starvation is the act of flooding the DHCP server with DHCP Discover packets in such a way that the range of available IP addresses at the server is exhausted. This “starves”the legitimate client as there is no available IP Address. This is called a DHCP Starvation Attack.

3 questions

DHCP Starvation:

DHCP – Dynamic Host Configuration Protocol, is a standardized network protocol used to automatically allocate IP addresses on a network from a specified range of IP addresses.


DHCP Starvation
attack is the act of flooding the server with DHCP Discover packets in such a way that the range of available IP addresses at the server is exhausted, thus making the legit client starve without an IP Address.

04:10

A Rogue DHCP Attack is a sister attack to DHCP Starvation. In this session you will learn how this attack can be carried out.

6 questions

Performing DHCP starvation allows the attacker to launch his system as the DHCP Server. If the attack is successful, the attacker becomes the DHCP Server and assigns IP addresses to the clients, with his IP as the Gateway.

6 pages

You will learn various methods with which to mitigate the Attack Vectors discussed in this session.

Section 4: Network Layer Attacks
01:28

In this session you will learn how to perform IP spoofing. This is simply the act forging a source IP address with the purpose of concealing the senders true identity.

00:42

Step by step approach to performing an IP Spoof Attack.

01:32

In this session you will learn how an attacker can sniff traffic between two systems without directly probing the victim. This is called a Passive MITM attack.

00:47

In this session you will learn how to use an Active MITM Attack. This attack allows an attacker to sniff traffic between two systems by directly probing the victim.


02:50

A step by step approach allowing you to get hands on experience in performing MITM.

01:15

ICMP – Internet Control Message Protocol - is a protocol used to test the systems in a network for their availability. In this session you will learn how this protocol can be used to perform a DOS or Flooding Attack.

00:58

Step by step approach to performing an ICMP Flooding Attack.

01:44

In this session you will be instructed how to perform a SMURF Attack. Similar to an ICMP Flooding Attack, this is a different method of exploiting the ICMP protocol.

01:10

A step by step approach to performing a SMURF Attack.

01:00

This session deals with an archived attack known as Ping of Death. When a packet which is larger than that of the maximum size allowed is sent to a target computer, it results in a system crash called Ping of Death.

1 question

02:05

This session gives you an insight into how WEP works.

02:44

The method of meddling with an ongoing connection, by injecting new packets which pretend that they are a part of the normal communication, is known as packet injection or packet forging. This session deals with using this method to crack the WEP Password.

02:18

A step by step approach to cracking the WEP Key using the Packet Injection method.

03:13

By grabbing a gratuitous ARP packet sent by any one of the clients, the attacker manipulates it to form an ARP request and sets up a fake AP, thus collecting packets from clients in a large number. This session explains how to crack the WEP Key using the grabbed packets.

01:37

A step by step approach to performing a Caffe Latte Attack.

02:42

This attack, unlike Caffe Latte, captures any IP or ARP packet to generate an ARP request and make the clients connected to the AP send large number of data packets, which the attacker captures. This session explains how to crack the WEP Key with these packets.
