During a Wireless Attack and Penetration, SecureState will take a wireless footprint of the target environment to identify all access points that belong to your organization. More importantly, the encryption types used across the wireless environment are determined at this time. Key targets are selected for attack. If unencrypted networks are observed, clear-text transmissions can be sniffed and reassembled in an attempt to identify user credentials and sensitive information.
SecureState may initiate several attacks depending on the wireless environment. If weak protocols are discovered, active attacks will be run in an attempt to break the encryption on the affected networks. These attacks can include man in the middle (MitM) attacks, brute force attacks, session hijacking, and mass de-authentication. If your organization's network is found to be using Enterprise authentication, SecureState will perform tests against the wireless clients themselves in order to determine if these devices are being configured properly.
If SecureState achieves access to your organization's wireless environment, an assessment is performed on the network’s endpoints. Checks are made for proper segmentation between corporate and guest wireless networks and the hardline network. SecureState will progress into the network as vulnerabilities are identified. SecureState will exploit critical exposures to determine the extent of the access that could be achieved by a legitimate attacker. SecureState applies the Vulnerability Linkage Theory (VLT), linking multiple low and medium-severity vulnerabilities together to create higher risk exposures on the system.
