Wi-Fi Network Vulnerability Analysis and Risk Assessment in Lebanon
Information and Communications Technology Department, American University of Science and Technology, Beirut, Lebanon
The aim of this paper is to analyze the Wi-Fi network vulnerabilities and risk assessment in Lebanon in order to raise awareness to the Lebanese public by informing them of threats that occur on the network and their impact. The analysis is done by first performing a wardrive; this involves capturing the network access points in several Lebanese regions with the use of two programs: Acrylic Wi-Fi Professional™, and Kismet™, as well as connecting an Alfa Network Antenna to the device in order to increase the range of capture. The data collected are stored in a database where they are processed in order to generate a statistics report of the security and risk level of the network in selected cities. Moreover, a custom survey of the basic knowledge of networking and security is publicly distributed.
