I got my Alfa card today

I got my new Alfa card today and I've watching and practicing the videos of Securitytube.net, it's good, a few weeks ago I was only watching the video but watching and following the exercise is great.

I hope after all this video I will take the wireless for Offensive Security

Re: I got my Alfa card today

Review the syllabus before you make a commitment. While the first part of the course does a good breakdown of how wireless works and how most packets are structured, it primarily focuses on cracking WEP. It's great for what it is, but IMHO, that course really needs an update.
The day you stop learning is the day you start becoming obsolete.

Re: I got my Alfa card today

I HIGHLY recommend SANS SEC617 if you can afford it. Not only will you learn the inner guts of wireless protocols, current and emerging attacks against wifi encryption and authentication (including WPA2 for both PSK and select EAP types) Bluetooth, Zigbee, etc you will leave armed with the techniques you need to perform research on proprietary and future wireless technologies as well.

I am the course author. I am not sure when was the last time you checked the course but WPA/WPA Personal, Enterprise and ton of other things have been added a while back.

The full list of videos is available here:

I am at the Defcon 19 Wireless Village today and we are giving out a free DVD of this course. If you are around, please do drop by.

Alternately, you can download this here:

Re: I got my Alfa card today

I'm pretty sure dynamik was referring to OSWP, which is outdated.

Re: I got my Alfa card today

Yeah, OSWP definitely needs an update. When there's more information in a Hacking Exposed book, I would think it's time to update ;)

Re: I got my Alfa card today

Yep, the ALFA card are really good! ready to use with Back|Track and really powerfull transmition capability at 1W...
and
Yep, the OSWP course should really need an update...

At the moment I am watching Vivek's wifi megaprimer to prepare for the SWSE cert that, as I read around, will be harder to pass then OSWP... ;-)

Re: I got my Alfa card today

I've had my Alfa card for about a month now and I stopped watching the securitytube videos because there's not enough time in day =/. I was also interested in the offensive security cert but just like you guys mentioned, its need an update about 2 years ago lol I wonder how the security tube wifi cert compares to OSWP, has any tried the security tube cert yet?
OSCP in progress
