Wireless network security (WLAN security) is the IT security branch designed to protect networks from the security breaches to which wireless transmissions are susceptible. This type of security is necessary because WLAN signals have no physical boundary limitations, and are prone to illegitimate access over network resources, resulting in the vulnerability of private and confidential data. Network operations and availability can also be compromised in case of a WLAN security breach. To address these issues, various authentication, encryption, invisibility and other administrative controlling techniques are used in WLANs. Business and corporate WLANs in particular require adequate security measures to detect, prevent and block piggybackers, eavesdroppers and other intruders.

Why you need a Penetration Test or a Vulnerability Assessment?

Wireless networks are more convenient than wired networks and allow you to move from meeting room to meeting room in your company. But they can also be more vulnerable if not properly secured.

Wireless networks use signals that can pass through walls and can travel beyond the limits of your company building. If you do not secure your network, nearby attackers might be able to access your corporate network or use your network resources to access confidential information.

How can a wireless attack affect your business?

Wireless threats come in all shapes and sizes, from someone attaching to your WAP (Wireless access point) without authorization, to grabbing packets out of the air and decoding them via a packet sniffer. Many wireless users have no idea what kinds of danger they face merely by attaching a WAP to their wired network.

The airborne nature of WLAN transmission opens your network to intruders and attacks that can come from any direction. WLAN traffic travels over radio waves that the walls of a building cannot completely constrain. Although employees might enjoy working on their laptops from a grassy spot outside the building, intruders can potentially access the network from the parking lot or across the street using a Wifi signal amplification antenna.

What are the benefits of a Penetration Test or a Vulnerability Assessment?

  • To execute a real-world attack on infrastructure and understand the level of risk that exists at a single moment in time;
  • To better identify and validate all security vulnerabilities associated with your Internet-facing environment;
  • To protect your employees and business assets.

Choose the Approach that Match Your Needs

The Bit Sentinel Vulnerability Assessments & Penetration Tests are scaled in order to meet the needs of your business. While security is fundamentally based on people and processes, there are a number of technical solutions to consider when testing security of wireless infrastructures. At a high level, these solutions include:

Black Box Testing

The Black Box Security Testing assumes no prior knowledge of the infrastructure to be tested. This unique approach enables our engineers to test your system from the perspective of an external attacker with zero knowledge of your systems applications or infrastructure.The advantages of this type of testing include:

  • The test is unbiased because the designer and the tester are independent of each other.
  • The tester does not need knowledge of any specific programming languages.
  • The test is done from the point of view of the user, not the designer.
  • Test cases can be designed as soon as the specifications are complete.

Our Black Box testing regime is therefore exceptionally able to identify weaknesses in any of your services that are accessible online or within a network, including standard web services and in-house application services.

White Box Testing

Also known as glass box, structural, clear box and open box testing. This is a testing technique whereby explicit knowledge of the internal workings of the item being tested are used to select the test data.The White Box Testing starts from a point of complete knowledge of the infrastructure to be tested, often including network diagrams, source code, and IP addressing information. Our experienced engineers then use their knowledge of the various elements of the infrastructure to identify the known weak points before conducting a comprehensive audit to identify all other vulnerabilities.The test is accurate only if the tester knows what the program is supposed to do. He or she can then see if the program diverges from its intended goal. White box testing does not account for errors caused by omission, and all visible code must also be readable.For a complete software examination, both white box and black box tests are required.

Grey Box Testing

The Grey Box Testing is a blend of Black Box testing and White Box testing techniques. This multifaceted test results in a comprehensive and highly focused test that cuts down on testing time-frame and budget. Moreover, this approach helps our engineers to learn how your application works and test at both ends whether a suspicious vector of an attack is plausible or not, minimizing False-Positive results.

Our Methodology

With the explosion of wireless networks and their adoption by companies of all sizes, the need to assess the security worthiness of the wireless environment should be considered a requirement not an option. It is our belief that if you deploy wireless you are obligated to manage the security on an ongoing and regular basis. This does not mean doing an occasional assessment, it means implementing an automated solution that monitors and alerts when anomalies are discovered. Wireless can be deployed securely, but due to the nature of wireless and the ease in which it can be easily expanded by the addition of rogue access points (AP) by either a uneducated user, administrator or mis-configuration of an AP, openings can be introduced fairly easily so managing the wireless security becomes a full time responsibility.
We use numerous tools available for free and commercial tools that allow us to assess a wireless network , we use these tools and know what to look for and how to interpret the information from these tools so you do not have to.
