Enterprise Wi-Fi Security
The Wireless LAN Security course consists of hands-on learning using the latest enterprise wireless LAN equipment. This course addresses in detail the most important and relevant WLAN security protocols, exchanges, and deployment strategies in the enterprise today. We focus heavily on understanding the functionality of the 802.11i amendment (now part of the larger standard), including authentication, encryption, and key management. 802.1X and EAP are also central to this conversation, with an in-depth examination of the inner-workings of each authentication mode and EAP type used in wireless LANs today. Other infrastructure security solutions are also taught, such as role-based access control, segmentation, VPNs, firewalls, wireless intrusion prevention and monitoring, secure roaming, and network management. Finally, no security course is complete without taking a look at security vulnerabilities, attacks, audit and penetration tools, as well as policy and prevention. We cover every type and class of WLAN security solution available on the market.
Students who complete the course will acquire the necessary skills for implementing and managing wireless security in the enterprise by creating Layer-2 and Layer-3 hardware and software solutions with tools from the industry leading manufacturers. This course is also designed to prepare attendees to take and pass the PW0-204 CWSP security exam.
