Wi-Fi RF spectrum, baby monitors, wireless cameras, interference and noise

Wi-Fi RF spectrum, baby monitors, wireless cameras, interference and noise Within the Wi-Fi radioelectric spectrum designated for Wi-Fi communications (802.11b/g/n), we can find a large number of devices that not always coexist in the medium in a friendly and orderly fashion. The 2.4GHz (2400-2500 MHz) range is an unlicensed frequency band, which means that no special permits or strict requirements [...]

Wi-Fi RF Spectrum; interferences; how to detect them, case study: microwaves.

The Wi-Fi standard operates in two frequency ranges. The most widely used RF spectrum within the 2.4GHz range is commonly affected by many different wireless interference and noise sources, and among these sources, microwave ovens are one of the most common, which are present in most households, offices and factories, usually located in kitchens/buffet areas. Wi-Fi (802.11) interferences. Most common [...]

Access point signal strength, noise, location, and coverage area When evaluating the results of a Wi-Fi network deployment, the parameters to are usually analyzed are access point coverage, signal strength (RSSI) and Signal to Noise Rate (SNR). An access point location map showing signal strength values should reveal if the access points are properly propagating the network, or if the [...]

Wi-Fi Spectrum Analysis, How to Perform One, and What Information It Provides

Wi-Fi Spectrum Analysis, How to Perform One, and What Information It Provides When analyzing a Wi-Fi infrastructure, it is important to note that, besides 802.11 standard devices, many different transmission sources coexist and interfere with the network's access points, which can have a negative impact on the network's performance that cannot be explained by analyzing the access point configuration. We [...]

Hidden Wi-Fi Network: How to know the name of a wireless network with no SSID

Hidden Wi-Fi Network: How to know the name of a wireless network with no SSID One of the security mechanisms used by Wi-Fi networks is hiding their names, since a client device can only connect to a Wi-Fi network with a known SSID. In this article, we will debunk this obsolete security mechanism and we will show you several ways [...]

Hostapd-wpe for OpenWrt Barrier Breaker

Hostapd-wpe (Wireless Pwnage Edition) is a patch for hostapd v2.2 created by the OpenSecurity Research group aiming to replace FreeRadius-WPE. The WPE patch implements 802.1X authentication server impersonation attacks in order to obtain client credentials, but also implements Cupid attack, allowing to exploit heartbleed vulnerability (CVE-2014-0160) on client connections over EAP-PEAP/TLS/TTLS. This article arises after the need for a portable [...]

Attacks on WPA Enterprise infrastructures with hostapd-WPE

The previous article outlined the cross-compilation and installation process of hostapd-WPE for OpenWrt Barrier Breaker. This article continues detailing the configuration and execution of hostapd-WPE for OpenWrt, aiming in conducting security tests on WPA Enterprise environments 802.11x. Hostapd-WPE allows conducting IEEE 802.11x (WPA Enterprise) server impersonation attacks in order to obtain client credentials, but also implements Cupid attack, allowing to [...]
