The Wi-Fi Tools for Analysis and GEO-Locating (WTAG) training program is designed to review the capability of hidden devices in structures, peer-to-peer hidden communication through use of common devices such as PSP, Nintendo DS, iPhones and geo-location of those Wi-Fi devices. The program will also review real-world circumstance of Wi-Fi being involved in Child Pornography, Terrorism, and Child Exploitation.
The WTAG will review the threats, the exploits, and the defense techniques along with real-world investigative techniques available to Law Enforcement. An in-depth look at these fields, will expose the student to Wi-Fi threats through the eyes of an attacker. Using readily available and open-source tools and off-the-shelf devices, students will navigate through the techniques attackers use to exploit Wi-Fi devices, what information they can glean from a device and how this can be used. The use of Wi-Fi devices utilized for hidden communication and storage purposes will also be explored.
This program is designed for the intermediate to advanced skill level student.
