Offensive Security Wireless Attacks with Kali (WiFu) is an online, self-paced course that introduces students to the skills needed to audit and secure wireless devices. It is the advanced Penetration Testing Training program by Offensive Security. In addition to the traditional course guide and video-based lectures, each student will be required to set up a home lab in order to practice techniques learned in the course. You will learn to identify existing vulnerabilities in 802.11 networks and execute organized attacks in a controlled manner. Upon successful completion of the course and certification exam, you will officially become an Offensive Security Wireless Professional, which is the only practical wireless attacks certification in the security field today.
