Abstract: Wireless penetration testing has long been believed to be the most effective way to find exploits and to verify whether a system is vulnerable. Also, it frequently allows the security analyst (ECSA) to find new vulnerabilities. Penetration testing plays a vital role in the network security policy of every organization. It gives a bird-eye perspective on the current level of network security. It also helps to identify what information is exposed to the public. By imitating attack scenarios with all the possible situations, wireless penetration testing helps to identify and reduce security risks. Furthermore, it identifies overlooked areas in terms of security and allows network engineers to improve their current networking infrastructure.
