Thinking twice before connecting to a public Wi-Fi at a coffee shop, hotel or an airport lounge is a must nowadays. Every Wi-Fi user should be cautious whether this free Wi-Fi hotspot that is allowed to be connected to is authentic or nothing but a rogue access point. Rogue access points (aka evil twin access point) allows the attacker to eavesdrop network traffic and to intercept the victims exchanged data or to even to alter the data while en route. The objective of this study that is going to be conducted somewhere in Jordan is to assess the security level in this area and to put a remedy to the weaknesses wherever found. This paper gives a statistical survey to illustrate the threatening level of such fake access point then to analyze the weaknesses and strengths of security measures in order to raise people awareness toward this kind of attacks.
