    Are you a wireless security administrator? If you are, then this book is for you. Authors Chris Hurley, Russ Rogers, Frank Thornton, Daniel Connelly and Brian Baker, have done an outstanding job of writing a book to show you how to analyze wireless networks through wardriving and penetration testing. Hurley, Rogers, Thornton, Connelly and Baker, begin with a discussion about wardriving and how it applies to a wireless penetration test. Then, the authors discuss how antennas work and how to choose the right antenna for conduction wireless network penetration testing. Next, they show you how to use a handheld device for direction finding and tracking, down to rogue access points and clients. The authors also introduce some basic techniques for wardriving and penetration testing using Microsoft Windows. They continue by describing the steps necessary to configure and utilize the KisMAC WLAN discovery tool in order to successfully wardrive. Then, the authors show you how to identify your specific WLAN target and determine what security measures are being utilized. Next, they show you how to use two of the most popular mapping applications: Kismet and NetStumbler. The authors then discuss the hardware required for a wireless MITM attack. They continue by focusing on the Open WRT firmware. Finally, they focus on how to perform a wireless test against a client, and examine some of the vulnerabilities related to wireless video. This most excellent book assesses wireless networks, while leveraging these free tools to low-cost supporting hardware. Perhaps more importantly, after reading this book, you¿ll get a taste of how wardriving really works in the real world.
