Hacking by Numbers Reloaded - Wireless Bootcamp

SensePost | August 2-3

On This Page


This course is all about attacking Wi-Fi: from home access points, to corporate access points, to client devices (laptops, mobile phones, etc.). It'll start with the basics, then work through standard techniques that our analysts use in their Wi-Fi engagements, and work up to bleeding edge research that SensePost has been conducting. On the later point, the course will include exclusive training around SensePost's distributed tracking and profiling framework known as Snoopy.

This two day course has enough theory to ensure you understand what you're doing, but with a heavy focus on practical exercises. Expect a lot of hands on hacking with some of the finest hackers in the industry!

All of SensePost’s Hacking By Numbers trainers are working as penetration testers. HBN course modules are often inspired by actual penetration tests we have performed in the past. We love teaching and have been doing so for Black Hat for over a decade now. Our courses are hands on, fun to do and also show real world scenarios that students will encounter.
