Resumen

The increasing popularity of wireless networks has opened organizations up to new security threats and many traditional countermeasures are ineffective in dealing with them. Any networked system where security or privacy protection of assets is valued needs security experts to protect and control it. There exists a need for an automated security system which helps security analysts to focus on critical points. This paper discusses the issues related to vulnerability assessment in wireless networks and proposes a new distributed system to analyze system interactivity, security capability and vulnerability detection in wireless networks. The design and implementation of this distributed vulnerability detection system for WLANs is also presented. This proposal is based on international best practices for security, the Open Source Security Testing Methodology Manual (OSSTMM), It is part of a wider system for automating vulnerability detection not only for wireless but for wired networks called Consensus.
