This seemingly advanced man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack known as ARP Cache Poisoning is done easily with the right software. we will discuss a similar type of MITM attack called DNS Spoofing.
  • Password Authentication and Password Cracking We’re going to explore different authentication mechanisms. An authentication mechanism. Passwords have been the default method of authentication for as long as most of us have needed to prove to a computer that we’re allowed to access it.

Workshop IV – Security Issues in Wireless Networks

Time: 14:00 - 16:00
Venue: HDFL Lab - 4ndfloor


The risks to users of wireless technology have increased as the service has become more popular. There were relatively few dangers when wireless technology was first introduced. Hackers had not yet had time to latch on to the new technology, and wireless networks were not commonly found in the work place. However, there are many security risks associated with the current wireless protocols and encryption methods, and in the carelessness and ignorance that exists at the user and corporate IT level. Hacking methods have become much more sophisticated and innovative with wireless access. Hacking has also become much easier and more accessible with easy-to-use Windows- or Linux-based tools being made available on the web at no charge.

In this workshop we will demonstrate how open source tools can be used to hack wireless networks and gain unauthorized access to wifi network which can further be used to gain access to systems and networks. We will also discuss the security concerns of GSM networks in this workshop.

Love it or hate it, social media is part of the business world. It's how to connect with customers and business peers, as well as continues to define a brand. Social networking is profoundly changing the way people communicate and interact on a daily basis. Online social networks are serving as a vital means for supporting information and resource sharing, aiding discovery of connected individuals, improving communication between globally dispersed individuals, and even measuring scientific impact.

Social networking privacy issues have dominated the headlines in the first half of 2011. With most social networks, the default settings share everything and users have to reset their options to make their accounts more private. This opens up a host of security issues because so many people—both friends and not—have access to your information.

This workshop is aimed at creating awareness about privacy issues in social networks, attacks going beyond just gaining user credentials and privacy preserving techniques.
