Wireless technologies are ubiquitous in modern systems yet pose unique challenges. This technical course looks at the security issues of a broad range of wireless devices from wireless computers, mobile phones and operational technologies. The course takes an in-depth look at the types of different protocols, technologies, contextual considerations as well as practical approaches to attack and defence.
Topics covered include:
This course assumes knowledge from Cyber Security Boot Camp. While this is a technical course, it's instructor-led and designed so non-technical students can further understand how attacks are carried out and better comprehend defence techniques.
This session introduces students to networking basics such as protocols used, transport layers and proxies, and reorientates students to the wireless environment. We'll cover common discovery techniques as well as attacks on common 802.11 infrastructure.
Wireless technologies and Security, Networking Basics, Fundamentals of Wireless.
in this session, students continue to develop their understanding of 802.11 with a focus on attacking client devices, complex networks and basic defence techniques.
Client Side Attacks, Monitoring and Defences.
This session introduces students to software-defined radio as well as areas relating to the field including DECT, mobile telecommunications and satellite communications.
SDR, Satcom, DECT, Mobile Telecommunications, POCSAG.
This session focuses on other bespoke networks, protocols and personal area networks including Bluetooth, NFC and 802.15.4. A 'bull ring' of problem-solving activities will be employed and instructor led for this activity.
PANs, Bluetooth, NFC, 802.15.4, Attack Surfaces, Zigbee Environment.
This session focuses on an exploration of IoT environments, as well as defensive practices from a development and operational standpoint.
IoT Research and Defences, IoT practical activities.
