Organizational Systems Wireless Auditor®
Wireless Auditing Certification
The Organizational Systems Wireless Auditor® (OSWA) is an international wireless auditing and pentesting certification course which focuses specifically on providing IT professionals with the technical knowledge and skills of how to practically and technically conduct and execute wireless security audits & penetration tests against both wireless infrastructures and wireless clients. With many countries announcing wireless internet access initiatives, attending the OSWA will give you a solid grounding in how to audit the security of wireless networks and clients.
Based on usage of the OSWA-Assistant, ThinkSECURE R&D's wireless auditing/penetration-testing software toolkit LiveCD, the OSWA focuses primarily on providing attendees with the technical knowledge, methodology and skills to execute a wireless audit/penetration test through the use of the LiveCD. The OSWA is designed by wireless security professionals from the ground up to teach penetration-testing and security. Using ThinkSECURE's 5E Attacker Methodology as a framework, the programme covers topics such as Radio Frequency (RF) and RF Spectrum Analysis, 802.11 frame analysis, advanced wireless LAN penetration techniques, RFID security weaknesses, Probemapping and wireless client targeting and building/hacking wireless hardware. Attendees will also learn how to geographically isolate and hunt down wireless hackers, moochers and other unauthorized wireless users using ThinkSECURE's MoocherHunter tool, which is not authorized to be taught in any other non-ThinkSECURE-related certification course.
The OSWA's 100% practical hands-on certification examination ensures that anyone who can attain the the OSWA certification has proven that they have true practical skill and ability to apply knowledge to unfamiliar wireless penetration-testing situations.
Programme attendees will also get a customized version of the OSWA-Assistant, ThinkSECURE R&D's wireless auditing/penetration-testing software toolkit CD. This toolkit is an indispensible tool for helping IT-security professionals to audit 802.11, Bluetooth and RFID wireless technologies and has been distributed by the Wall-of-Sheep group at DEFCON/Blackhat.
The OSWA augments and improves the skills and capabilities of IT-Security professionals by equipping them with the relevant technical skills and an understanding of ethical and legal issues involved in wireless auditing. Simply put, participants will come away with the following:
A comprehensive understanding of the nature of Radio Frequency (RF)
Technical knowledge of 802.11, Bluetooth & RFID security issues
Ability to detect and identify the presence and security characteristics of wireless networks
Knowing what pre-wireless-audit hardware, software, legal and procedural preparation is required
Advanced technical skills and ability in performing wireless security audits
Thorough knowledge of how to isolate and geographically track down wireless hackers and moochers
Ability to build and hack your own wireless hardware
Ability to recommend wireless security countermeasures
With its wide variety of practical classroom labwork and a hands-on, practical certification exam, the OSWA wireless auditing and penetration-testing programme is an ideal complement to the defence-oriented OSWiSP secure wireless deployment and administration training programme.
