The feature of wireless networks in high influx of people environments, such as higher education institutions or public access places, lies in the open or free connection in which they are deployed. The purpose for creating a wireless network is to provide Internet access services. In addition, in organizations can be deployed several types of networks with different security levels, from open networks without any security mechanism to Advanced authentication techniques and encryption. The main vulnerability is undoubtedly due to the open network mode, where unauthorized access is a serious problem, because it can lead to privilege escalation attacks and total compromise of the communications infrastructure. This situation led to a penetration test methodology design called OWITest to enhance the offensive security of a wireless network.
