Editorial Reviews

Review

"Despite the increasingly number of wireless devices, these security and information technology professionals contend that physical penetration tests for defending computer systems and companies neglect wireless traffic outside of Bluetooth and 802.11 devices and thus, often miss testing other wireless devices such as guard radios, wireless headsets, and cordless phones."--Reference and Research Book News, August 2013

From the Back Cover

In many penetration tests, there is a lot of useful information to be gathered from the radios used by organizations. These radios can include two-way radios used by guards, wireless headsets, cordless phones and wireless cameras. Wireless Reconnaissance in Penetration Testing describes the many ways that a penetration tester can gather and apply the information available from radio traffic. Stopping attacks means thinking like an attacker, and understanding all the ways that attackers gather information, or in industry terms profile, specific targets. With information from what equipment to use and how to find frequency information, to tips for reducing radio information leakage, to actual case studies describing how this information can be used to attack computer systems, this book is the go-to resource for penetration testing and radio profiling.

Let me preface this review with this: I am a penetration tester, but I am a complete newbie when it comes to radio and radio theory. What was very helpful for me is that this book has a whole chapter (Chapter 2) on radio systems and theory, which really helped me learn everything I needed to know in order to add radio reconnaissance to my penetration testing arsenal.

There are two things that really stick out about this book:

1. The authors do an excellent job of applying the theory presented in the book with case studies of real life penetration tests. While there are case studies at the end of many chapters, there is a whole chapter (Chapter 8) dedicated to a penetration test on a casino. Yes, plenty of other books have case studies, but where this one stands out is that it includes additional sections on remediation and lessons learned. This was a welcome addition to the excellent case studies given. Many testers have to face this after the test: "I just broke it, how do I fix it!". This book gives you some help with the remediation process.

2. Many times throughout the book, the authors go the extra step to cover things that testers might forget about when performing the engagement, such as checking with local laws and making sure your scope and rules of engagement allow you perform that specific test. While you can find plenty of technical books, very few mention proper testing techniques beyond running the tool.

This book clearly reflects that the authors know their trade very well and is very well written and illustrated. Wireless Reconnaissance in Penetration Testing is great for someone just getting into radio (like me) or even the seasoned amateur radio operator.

Having been a radio nut for over 40 years i found the book to be well written. This area of a pen test would be easily overlooked.

I bought this book to not only brush up on things that I already knew, but also to learn new tools and techniques that could help with performing penetration tests.

This book is great for people of all skill levels and should be read by all. The authors provided a nice blend of theory vs. real world in an easy-to-understand format. I would highly recommend this book to anyone that has an interest in the security field.

I'm researching for my next thriller and found this book especially helpful. I do have a question for the authors: there's reference to an "infected USB stick in the lobby" as a method of snoooping. How exactly does this work?

Thanks for doing a great job of making the technical understandable.

By the way, I came on your book on Safari.
