The certification exam contains a small number of wireless networks of varying configurations and you must recover the wireless keys for all of them in order to earn the OSWP certification. Everything that you need to retrieve the wireless keys is included on the exam system.
You will have 3 hours and 45 minutes to complete the challenge itself and a further 24 hours to send your documentation to the Offensive Security Challenges department.
Your exam documentation must include the wireless network keys and the commands you used to obtain them. The report must be submitted in PDF format.
HOW DO I TAKE THE CERTIFICATION EXAM?
You will connect to the OSWP exam lab over an SSH connection. You are assigned a BackTrack 5 system with an Alfa USB card that you are to use for the attacks. In order to ensure you do not lose any work during the exam, we recommend that students use the screen utility while doing the exam in the event the SSH connection is dropped.
