      Hi guys, anyone can share the differences between CWSP and OSWP.
      Which would be prefer after getting CWNA? I have interests but no
      experience in enterprise wireless and would consider myself average
      techie in wireless security. I like to work with wireless security in the
      future but could not decided which will reap the most benefits in term
      of knowledge and skill.

      Any advise will be greatly appreciated.

      If your interest is in enterprise wireless, CWSP is undoubtedly your cert of choice. OSWP focuses on cracking WEP/WPA-PSK, rainbow table generation, GPS mapping, client attacks (karmetasploit), etc. This is all obviously good information to know if you manage wireless networks, but the CWSP takes you through the entire process of planning, designing, implementing, monitoring, etc. I took the exam a version back, but I remember it being very heavy on all the different EAP types.

      Edit: I did the OSWP about a month ago and have been meaning to post a review on my blog. I’ll try to get that up sometime this week.

      Well said, if you do not want to drift off from the ethical hacking side OSWP is a good choice.
