I passed the OSWP

Just got the email saying that I passed the OSWP over the weekend. Took me about 2 hours. Most of it was waiting.

I'm geeked beyond belief. First cert I've taken and passed in a while.

THANK YOU DON and the EH-Community for the opportunity to take the course and exam. (Got the course and exam from the March 2010 giveaway).

Re: I passed the OSWP

Congrats, chrisj!  It's yet another one on my list, but need time and $$.  Wireless hacking / security is an area I already feel strong in, however, I KNOW there's always more knowledge to learn, and new tools / perspectives to utilize, so I'm looking forward, at some point.

Good for you man!

How did you like the course? Was it good?
I think I heard it is a bit outdated. Is it true?

It is outdated. For the current standards the couse is like a soldier which have only a revolver. If you send him to fight in an university campus (not MIT) it might be successful, but if you send him to war... no big chances.

I liked the course a lot. It has it's problems, but was good.

It's kind of out dated. It's primary focus is WEP and brute forcing WPA-PSK, but if you're looking for the people that went out and put an access point up when they were told no, it'll work fine.

I'll message you, since I asked Don if he wanted an article for the review, or a forum post and haven't heard back yet. Don't want to give too much away until I know where to put it. Although Pizza1337's post was pretty good.

Re: I passed the OSWP

Congrats for your cert!

I've taken mine too last month and am very happy with it though OSWP seems a bit outdated.

Right now I am wathing the wifi megaprimer on Securitytube and preparing to take the Securitytube Wireless Security Expert (SWSE) certification. As far as I have seen by now this material gives a lot more attention to WPA and client attacks whereas OSWP covers merely WEP attacks.

Re: I passed the OSWP

I'm going for SWSE... did you check out Vivek's megaprimer on Securitytube?
He came out with a Wifi Security certification too. It will start on october 15th. 200$ early registration (until 15th) after $250 the course material is free you pay only for the exam and cert give it a look I think it is worth... The exam lab, as far as I know at the moment, will have 10 AP and 4 wireless client with various os's...

Give me a shout if you are go to take it too :-D

Re: I passed the OSWP

If you do decide to take the SWSW, we definitely would like a review. I would really like to get my hands on one of the wireless pentesting certs, but I kept hearing from people that OSWP is out dated, so maybe SWSE will gain some ground.
