Young AFCEANs Learn About Rogue Access Points

In October, Christopher Barber, design engineer at Radiance Technologies Intelligence Systems, performed a live security demonstration at CoHabitat in Shreveport, Louisiana, for the third presentation in the chapter's Continuing Education Lunch and Learn series. Barber is a Certified Ethical Hacker (C|EH) and a Certified Information Systems Security Professional (CISSP) finishing his master of science in electrical engineering at Louisiana Tech University. In his presentation, “Rogue Access Points and the Dangers of Open Wi-Fi,” Barber showcased specialized portable hacking hardware to steal wireless traffic from unsuspecting victims without a trace. Using his battery-powered, waterproof pineapple with customizable firmware modules and high-gain antennas, Barber also demonstrated the ability to remote control his equipment so that attackers need not be near their victims. All equipment demonstrated is available to the public and affordable. Twenty-six military and industry professionals attended the event and can claim one hour of continuing education credits toward their professional certifications for their participation.
