ARP Poisoning - Electronic Security :: 10-10-2008

Here is the presentation from our last Electronic Security meeting, arp poisoning and man-in-the-middle attacks: ElectronicSecurity2.pdf. The tool used during the demonstrations was ettercap (www), and the environment used was BackTrack 3 (www), a security-oriented linux live cd.

If you would like to learn more about this topic, SANS has an excellent whitepaper on the subject available here: (www)

WEP/WPA Cracking - Electronic Security :: 9-11-2008

As promised, here are the instructions that were used at tonight's Electronic Security meeting to demonstrate WEP and WPA cracking: wep.txt, wpa.txt. A few notes: the mac addresses referred to in the instructions are of the form 00:11:22:33:44:55, and the filename argument for airodump-ng is a prefix, so "-w wpa" would cause everything to be saved to a file named wpa-01.cap. Also, "ath0" and "wifi0" are the device names used on my computer, other computers may use wlan0 or eth1 instead depending on their wireless chipsets. These files are meant to be a reference, not a step-by-step tutorial, so you may need to read the aircrack suite's manuals if you don't understand the instructions in these files.

The linux distribution used was BackTrack 3, available here: http://www.remote-exploit.org. Here's the presentation from tonight's meeting as well: ElectronicSecurity1.ppt.

Electronic Security :: 9-8-2008

The locations for the Electronic Security meetings have been updated on the Meetings page. The first meeting will be this Thursday (9/11) from 6:30 - 8:30pm in WAG 308.

Fall 2008 Meeting Schedule, New format ::

The meeting schedule for Fall 2008 is now posted on the Meetings page. We're going to try a new format this semester, with separate meeting dates for those new to lockpicking (Beginner Lockpicking), and those interested in more advanced topics (Advanced Lockpicking). In addition, we're incorporating another aspect of security with our new Electronic Security meetings. If there's enough interest in these meetings we'll make it a permanent part of the club.

And remember, we still have informal meetings on the first Friday of every month that tend to incorporate all three topics. You can find the time and location for these at the bottom of the Meetings page.
