About this item

Hacking Wireless Access Points: Cracking, Tracking, and Signal Jacking provides readers with a deeper understanding of the hacking threats that exist with mobile phones, laptops, routers, and navigation systems. In addition, applications for Bluetooth and near field communication (NFC) technology continue to multiply, with athletic shoes, heart rate monitors, fitness sensors, cameras, printers, headsets, fitness trackers, household appliances, and the number and types of wireless devices all continuing to increase dramatically.

The book demonstrates a variety of ways that these vulnerabilities can be-and have been-exploited, and how the unfortunate consequences of such exploitations can be mitigated through the responsible use of technology.

  • Teaches how wireless access points can be hacked, also providing the techniques necessary to protect and defend data
