Executing the Evil Twin Wireless Attack

The following document is one of the case studies we carried out in the 1st semester at the Advanced Cybersecurity MSc. (Polytechnic University of Bucharest). It describes how a rogue wireless access point (a.k.a. the “Evil Twin”) can be created to mimic a legitimate one, in order to trick users to connect to it.

The paper also contains a working proof-of-concept (PoC) that presents the main steps that I personally took while executing this attack (along with the needed hardware & software). This is something you should try only at home, on your own equipment 😅.

The goal was to gracefully steal precious WiFi passwords with an Evil Twin and a little bit of Social Engineering, instead of applying brute-force to guess them (which sometimes takes a little bit too much time 💀).
