Access Control Systems

a1You’ve worked hard to secure your servers, workstations, and network. But increasingly, your physical security is tied into electronic access control systems, bringing major exposure to your enterprise if these systems aren’t secured properly. How can you trust your systems if their physical security is in jeopardy? Every security professional should have some skills in assessing access control systems, and this class provides exactly what you need.

Whether an enterprise is using HID Prox cards, NXP Hitag chips, Mifare credentials, or even iCLASS technology, students who have taken this course will be well-versed in the functionality, weaknesses, and attack vectors of such systems. From how to perform practical card cloning attacks in the field to advanced format downgrade attacks, students are prepared for real-world red team scenarios and learn how to exploit access control technology with the latest attack hardware.
