Wireless networks extend the internal environment to potential external attackers within range. Are your wireless networks secured? Is your public guest networks isolated from the private network?
Wireless penetration tests assess the adequacy of multiple security controls designed to protect unauthorized access to wireless services. Testing attempts to exploit wireless vulnerabilities to gain access to private (protected) wireless SSIDs or to escalate privileges on guest SSIDs intended to be isolated from private networks.
Why should we conduct an Internal Wireless Security Assessment?
The wireless network brings convenience and mobility to internal users, but with this convenience comes additional risks. An attacker does not need to gain physical access if vulnerable wireless networks can be compromised from a safe distance. Wireless access provided to guests and visitors needs to be isolated from protected environments. Wireless provided to employees needs to protect those connections and the data transmitted over the air. Testing wireless networks is a critical activity to ensure wireless networks are providing the intended access and only the intended access.
How do I choose which wireless networks and sites to test?
Testing should include each type of wireless network, including guest networks, BYOD, private, and facilities. The configurations for each type are as unique to the intended purpose of the deployments. When wireless networks span many physical locations but are centrally managed with common configurations, sampling is often utilized to test each unique wireless setup such that recommendations can be implemented across the enterprise. The key to selecting the scope of a wireless penetration test is to ensure each unique type of wireless is tested to produce comprehensive results without performing unnecessary and redundant testing.
