In lots of penetration assessments, there's a lot of priceless details to be collected from the radios utilized by companies. those radios can comprise two-way radios utilized by guards, instant headsets, cordless telephones and instant cameras. Wireless Reconnaissance in Penetration Testing describes the various ways in which a penetration tester can assemble and follow the data to be had from radio site visitors. preventing assaults ability considering like an attacker, and knowing the entire ways in which attackers assemble info, or in phrases profile, particular goals. With details from what apparatus to exploit and the way to discover frequency info, to information for decreasing radio details leakage, to genuine case reviews describing how this knowledge can be utilized to assault desktops, this booklet is the go-to source for penetration trying out and radio profiling.
* writer Matthew Neely is a revered and recognized specialist and speaker on radio reconnaissance and penetration testing

The FCC also is responsible for coordinating and issuing radio operation licenses, which authorize organizations to transmit on specific frequencies, at specific power levels, in specific geographical regions. The FCC manages the RF spectrum, and therefore is required to keep and maintain public records of who is licensed to use which frequencies. This makes them a valuable resource for profiling targets. How to access and use this license information from the FCC will be discussed in Chapter 4.
When a signal is transmitted into a repeater, it boosts the signal and rebroadcasts it, extending the range of the original signal. It is essential to note that repeaters have separate input and output frequencies. Were it not for this, the retransmission would be picked up again by the repeater, creating a feedback loop, and render the repeater useless. When listening to repeater traffic, be sure to listen for the output frequency; if you listen to the input frequency, you will only hear the traffic in your local area.
It is often useful during onsite reconnaissance to be able to determine the approximate frequency of a transmitter by the length of its antenna. Knowing this length will help you zero in on the frequency ranges that interesting signals are more likely to be found, and decrease the time it takes to determine the exact frequency used by the target. The required length of dipole and whip antennas is determined by the following equation: 492 = 0. 5 × wavelength = length of antenna (in feet) Frequency (MHz) To obtain the length in inches, multiply by 12.
