Getting the most out of Evil Twin with wifiphisher — BSides Athens 2016

Hello, this is George Chatzisofroniou (@_sophron), security engineer at CENSUS.

My last year’s talk at BSides London introduced to the public WifiPhisher, a security tool that mounts the Evil Twin attack against Wi-Fi networks.

The tool has since seen some heavy use by the wireless hacking community which has inspired further research into ways of making the Evil Twin attack more effective. This year, I was happy to discuss the results of this research in another BSides event which was held, for the first time, in my hometown — BSides Athens!

Hello. My name is George Chatzisofroniou (@_sophron) and I work as a security engineer at CENSUS. My current interests include cryptography, WiFi hacking, web security and network security.

This summer I gave a talk at BSides London. The talk was called ‘Introducing wifiphisher, a tool for automated WiFi phishing attacks’ and revolved around my recently published tool.

Wifiphisher is a security tool that mounts phishing attacks against WiFi networks. I released it in early 2015 and since then it became quite popular with a lot of press coverage. Community-driven BSides London seemed to be the perfect choice for introducing the tool and clarifying its purpose.
