Attackers sometimes use fake access points that pose as legitimate network connections in order to gain sensitive information or network access. In this video, learn about the risks posed by rogue access points and evil twin attacks.
- [Instructor] Attackers sometimes use fake…wireless access points that pose…as legitimate network connections in order…to gain sensitive information or network access.…Let's take a look at the risks…posed by rogue access points and evil twin attacks.…Rogue access points occur when someone connects…an unauthorized wireless access…point to an enterprise network.…This might be as innocuous as an employee…with bad wireless connectivity in his or her office…purchasing an access point and plugging it into…a nearby network jack to gain a better signal.…
Or it could be more sinister with a hacker connecting…an access point to later gain remote access to the network.…The huge risk with rogue access points…is that they can bypass other…wireless authentication mechanisms.…If you spend hours configuring your systems…to use WPA2 security a rogue access point…configured to avoid encryption…can quickly bypass all of that.…Anyone connecting to the rogue AP…can then gain unrestricted access to your network.…A second risk posed by rogue access points is interference.…
