Event Debrief- Mozilla and the Open Web Challenge

The National University of Science and Technology (NUST) held an Open Day on the 28th of March 2013 to showcase the final year projects that their student’s are working on. I had the privilege of being invited as a speaker at this event. The Open Day had three tracks. The first was for Speakers, the second for Career Guidance and the last was for the Computer Science Students to showcase their projects.

How NOT to protect your wifi.

Everyone has a wifi network these days and this is good, as wifi networks make it easy to connect all our devices to the net wherever they may be. This of course leads to a question. How secure is your network? Most people seem to think that a passkey/password is enough to keep your network from intruders. I’d like to show you why you need more than a password to keep your network safe.

Please note, I’m not an expert Network Administrator or certified Cisco Engineer (heck, I don’t even know how to make a network cable(that’s not really true, but point is I just know some stuff about networks, but not enough to be called an expert ok?))

That said, I’d like to share with you some tips on how NOT to protect you wifi network. This could also be read as how to infiltrate a weakly secured wifi connection. The side of the river you choose to stand on is totally up to you.

Ok, so let’s get into it shall we?
