Rob is conducting a penetration test against a wireless network and would like to gather network traffic containing successful authentication attempts but the network is not heavily trafficked and he wants to speed up the information gathering process. What technique can he use?
A. Brute force
B. Rainbow table
Correct Answer: C
Disassociation attacks intentionally disconnect a wireless user from their access point to force a reauthentication that the attacker may collect with a wireless eavesdropping tool. Brute force attacks, rainbow table attacks and replay attacks do not gather network traffic and, therefore, would not be useful in this scenario.
