A wireless penetration test, also known as a wireless network security assessment or a wireless security audit, is a type of security testing that involves testing the security of a wireless network and its associated devices. The goal of a wireless penetration test is to identify vulnerabilities and security weaknesses in the wireless network that could be exploited by an attacker.
During a wireless penetration test, the tester may use various tools and techniques to probe the wireless network and identify vulnerabilities. This may include techniques such as scanning for wireless networks, attempting to crack wireless encryption, or attempting to inject malicious code into the network.
Wireless penetration testing is an important part of ensuring the security of a wireless network, as wireless networks are often more vulnerable to attack than wired networks due to their reliance on radio frequency (RF) signals. It is important for organizations to regularly conduct wireless penetration testing to identify and address vulnerabilities in their wireless networks and devices.
