Join Mike Chapple for an in-depth discussion in this video WPA and WPS attacks, part of CompTIA Security+ (SY0-401) Cert Prep: Threats and Vulnerabilities.
- In the previous video, you learned how attackers…can easily defeat WEP encryption on wireless networks.…In this video, let's take a look at how…new attack techniques threaten to undermine the security…of newer encryption technologies.…Recall that there are four ways…to protect traffic on a wireless network.…We've already discussed how two of those…are woefully inadequate.…Running unencrypted wireless networks…leaves communications open for anyone to intercept,…and using Wired-Equivalent Privacy, or WEP,…provides a false sense of security because…it is easily hacked.…
Let's talk a little more about Wi-Fi Protected Access, or WPA.…WPA, like WEP, relies upon the RC4 Encryption Standard.…If you recall, the problem with WEP…is that hackers monitoring the network for a…long period of time can gather enough Cleartext information…to determine the encryption key, which never changes.…WPA adds a new twist to WEP:…the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol, or TKIP.…That's just a fancy way of saying…that the encryption key changes all of the time.…
