The OSWP Certification

The Offensive Security Wireless Professional (OSWP) is the certification for our wireless penetration testing course. The OSWP Certification Exam challenges you to prove that you have a clear and practical understanding of attacking wireless networks.

You have 120 days from the start of your course to schedule, and take, the exam. The OSWP Certification Exam requires you to connect to our remotely-hosted exam network via an SSH connection so a stable, high-speed Internet connection will be required. You will have 4 hours to successfully complete all stages of the exam.

Successfully achieving the OSWP Certificationdemonstrates to yourself, and others, that you possess the ability to circumvent various security restrictions implemented on wireless networks, bypass them, and recover the encryption keys in use.
