Course Description

Wireless Attacks (PEN-210) introduces students to the skills needed to audit and secure wireless devices. It's a foundational course alongside PEN-200 and would benefit those who would like to gain more skill in network security. In PEN-210, students will learn to identify vulnerabilities in 802.11 networks and execute organized attacks. Each student will set up a home lab to practice the techniques learned in this online, self-paced course. Successful completion of the course and exam confers the Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP) certification.
