    EH-Net - Wyllie - Wireless Pentesting Part 2 - Building a WiFi Hacking RigIn the first article of this series, “Wireless Pentesting Part 1 – An Overview”, we reviewed some penetration testing basics with the PTES and what one can expect to know about a system before starting an engagement. We also covered three general assessment levels and the differences between them. But most importantly in regards to a wireless pentest, we covered why wireless networks assessments should be a stand-alone item yet still be a part of the scope of a wider pentest. Even though you’ll learn some effective WiFi hacking tricks, the overall goal is to incorporate them into the job aspects of a professional.

    In this second part of the series, it’s time to get the right equipment for your tool bag. We are going to discuss the hardware, operating systems, and software requirements for setting up your own wireless pentesting rig. Your mileage may vary, but, based on years of experience and numerous engagements, this is a great WiFi hacking rig to get you started and should cover most needs. As you gain experience, you may find that some tools are better than others while also finding the need to expand beyond this simple setup for more advanced requests from clients.
