Enterprise Wi-Fi Security (CWSP)



Using the latest enterprise wireless LAN security and auditing equipment in this hands-on course, learn, in detail, the most up-to-date WLAN intrusion and DoS tools and techniques. You will learn about functionality of the 802.11i amendment to the 802.11 standard, the inner-workings of each EAP type used with wireless LANs today, and every class and type of WLAN security solution available on the market from wireless intrusion prevention systems to wireless network management systems. As an added bonus, you will receive a free exam voucher.


Wireless professionals looking to gain cutting-edge wireless security expertise and earn the CWSP credential should attend.
