Performing a DoS and DDoS on wireless switch


Recommended Posts


My Understanding, I present myself as a newbie and approching to be a Amateur. I know a little basics of what DoS and DDoS are. And also about the negatives of performing those on others networks.

My Goal, is need to perform a DoS and attack on Wireless Switch/Routers. I've my own switches which need to survive DoS attack on wireless control packets.

My Need, is how to perform such attack wirelessly. I'm bit handby with Low Orbit Ion Cannon tool which I use for wired attack on packets. Here, I require to perform wirelessly and to do Protocol DoS Attck - wireless.Protocols not just, ping, arp, http. Something indepth like, DHCP, Dot1X, dot11, capwap, dtls, rrm control packets.

What tools I can use, what referances I can get and what tutorial and taraings I can have. Any chat formus, where I can ping and expers and ask for advice on hacking? Basically, How to?

Greatly appreciate the help!

The wireless side of your switch is, by design, susceptible to a DoS attack using a jammer. You can make one (which I intend to do BTW) for about 15 bucks is parts using an amplifier, 4 transmitters and as much batteries as you can fit into your chosen enclosure. There is, effectively, no recourse for this as the spectrum is simply being flooded with noise. If you want to survive such an attack the only thing you can try is to use a VERY directional antenna aimed at your intended user(s) and hope the jammer isn't active in that same direction.

EDIT: Checked out the parts list (to the extent such a thing exists) and I found that it's more like 50-60 euros total. So that's like, what, 9000 dollars these days? :rolleyes: I'm still going to make one though.
