  • Configure the WLAN controller for RADIUS connectivity and authentication
  • Client station connectivity to the controller, including DHCP and browsing
  • Integrated rogue device discovery

Lab 2: Wireless Intrusion Prevention Systems (WIPS)

  • WIPS installation, licensing, add/configure sensors, and secure console connectivity
  • Configuration according to organizational policy
  • Properly classify authorized, unauthorized, and external/interfering access points
  • Identify and mitigate rogue devices
  • Identify specific attacks against the authorized WLAN infrastructure or client stations

Lab 3: Using Laptop Analyzers
