How does that person connect to my network automatically if he/she is not connected to any network in the first place? From Wi‑Fi Sense FAQ in section What does Wi-Fi sense do?, it says that your friend can connect to your network only after he has shared at least one network with his contacts. How will my Wi-Fi key be sent to that person's ...

If we assume that your procedure is correct then the only purpose of "No Handshake" situation is caused by hardware limitation, i.e.: When your wifi device is 802.11g will not capture the handshake packets which are sent between two 802.11n router and client. Everything will seem to be normal, you can see the frames and Beacons, also you are able to ...

Yes, an attacker can perform a man-in-the-middle attack against your requests over the network and replace the file your requested with his -malicious- own.

The school network administrator could limit the access to Internet through the following ways (depending on the network devices): MAC Address filter (White/Black list) - Not very efficient though since a MAC address can be easily spoofed. Scheduled time - Only within a certain time frame the connection to the Internet is allowed URL Blocking (White/Black ...

in psk authentication and 802.1x authentication methods, five main keys are generated. master session key,group master key,paired master key,paired transient key and group temporal key.paired transient key and group temporal key are generated after four way handshake. when you switch from one access point to another,the four way handshake starts again.

What if I want to communicate completely anonymously? Wireless is relatively anonymous from the perspective that you, as a person, won't be easily identified unless your traffic gives you away. That said, your location is identifiable using triangulation and your hardware device ID (MAC) will identify the device used unless you're able to override it. ...

That is because listening for a beacon and not getting it just might mean that the network has a private ("hidden") SSID. From this article (emphasis mine): The 802.11 standard allows APs to beacon with the SSID field set to null - this is referred to as a hidden SSID. A client that wishes to associate with an AP using a hidden SSID must first send ...

What I want to ask is even on a secured wifi (which requires some kind of password for authentication), the data still travels from a device to the router; can't that data be sniffed using tools? Yes, if you sniff in monitor mode, but the data will, as noted, be encrypted. let's say I were an authenticated user of such a secured connection and then ...

You'll probably find an answer to your question here: Why isn't open WiFi encrypted? In short, if you're using WPA2 or similar authentication on a wireless network, each connection is encrypted uniquely, even if they're using the same password. So yes, theoretically you can sniff the traffic that other WiFi users are generating, however it will all be ...

You would need to get access to the WiFI first and associate with the access point. You could collect becons and other associated management traffic, but the most you will get is some initialisation vectors, possibly the ssid and some other settings that allow clients to negotiate a connection when they are genenually connecting. In the days of WEP this was ...

What you're seeing is the intended behavior. Clients won't be able to connect to your rogue AP as your AP isn't set up with the same PSK the real AP is, and clients shouldn't connect to a network that has the same name (SSID) but different security (unencrypted). To answer your question, no it is not possible. Even if you manage to set up such an AP (pretty ...

If everything with the VPN is working correctly, nobody can see what you are browsing. The most that they can tell is that you've created a VPN connection to your VPN provider.

I suppose another approach is "punt on public AP whenever possible, and tether to a VPN connection over your phone instead". Chews up data though. You have basically two strategies for your risk (surfing on a public AP). Elimination: Not using it Mitigation: Taking precautions to reduce the probability and impact of having information disclosed. ...

How does that work? Does the guest computer connect to the sharing computer directly? Quoted from the FAQ: For networks you choose to share access to, the password is sent over an encrypted connection and stored in an encrypted file on a Microsoft server, and then sent over a secure connection to your contacts’ phone if they use Wi-Fi Sense ...

MS Wi-Fi Sense is simply going to share your pre-shared key for your Wireless network with the contacts that you have stored (Outlook, Facebook, and Bing I think?) so that your (presumed) friend can use your network without having to manually tell them the pre-shared key. Now - the reason Microsoft states that your guest won't be able to access other ...

Most of the remotely accessible power strips I've been looking at for a current project have either http or telnet access (no encryption on either) for control so any time you access it, you're sending credentials in the clear. They are in the IOT minimum security zone, anyone on the local segment can packet-sniff your credentials if they're determined to ...

Whether your company will control your use of the Wi-Fi will depend first of a key point: Is the policy of your company to provide a Wi-Fi network for professionnal use or for private use or for both? From the name with which you named your company Wi-Fi: "guest" Wi-Fi, I am tempted to diagnose that this Wi-Fi is targeted to provide an access to external ...

Whether you company will be able to see the content of your chats depends on a couple of factors Is your access to the chat site encrypted? if you're using SSL, then normally someone running a network you're accessing it over, will not be able to see the content of the chat (although they will likely know the name of the site you're accessing).
