  • Checking for Live Systems - Wardriving

    One way of scanning for live systems is Wardriving, the process of driving around with a wireless enabled device, such as a laptop, smart phone, tablets or other device with the goal of mapping out access points, usually with the help of a GPS device. If don't carefully and with some planning, you can locate many access points along with their configurations and physical locations. There are a number of tools that can be used to perform wardriving.

    List of commonly used tools in this category...

    An intrusion detection system that helps you monitor your wireless networks. It can notify the system owner as soon as an unapproved device connects to the wireless network.

    Warwalking is equal to wardriving except, as the name implies, warwalking is performed on foot while wardriving is done while driving.
