Description: Welcome to Part 6 of the WLAN Security Megaprimer! Please start this series by watching Part 1 http://www.securitytube.net/video/1756, if you have not done so already.
In this video, we will look at how to find the SSID of networks configured to be non-broadcasting (Hidden SSID). We will first understand the basics of hidden SSIDs and how they work using Beacon frames. Then we will explore both passive and active techniques to discover the SSID of a Hidden SSID network.
We will conduct the attacks using airodump-ng, aireplay-ng and Wireshark! So boot up your Backtracks and get ready! :)
As always please leave your comments / suggestions in this thread.
