What is an OSWP?
The Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP) is the only practical wireless attacks certification in the security field today. The OSWP challenges the students to prove they have the practical ability to perform 802.11 wireless audits using open source tools through a hands-on, four-hour certification exam.
The OSWP exam consists of several dedicated wireless networks with various configurations and vulnerabilities. The examinees are tasked with identifying, analyzing, and attacking each of the wireless networks presented to them, with the goal of gaining access to the network encryption keys.
The student must submit the correct encryption codes for all networks, as well as the attack vectors used to obtain them in order to be awarded the OSWP certification.
