As the Internet usage dramatically increases, cyber-threat also increases at the same time. Due to the growth rate of cyber-threat, cybersecurity education becomes more important than ever. In cybersecurity education, hands-on experience through the lab is crucial because students tend to learn thing better when observing how practically it’s been applied in real system. Recently, “wifiphisher” was introduced, which mounts automated phishing attack against Wi-Fi networks in order to harvest the credential information and/or infect victim with malware. Attacker first takes the man-in-the middle position and uses redirection technique to guide victim’s HTTP request to attacker’s webpage to steal victim’s credential information. Generally, virtualization technology is used in cybersecurity education due to its portability. However, wireless communication cannot be implemented through such a technology. Here, we propose to use Raspberry Pi, small and affordable computer, to develop the Wi-Fi Phishing lab to teach the mechanism of Phishing attack in free Wi-Fi network. In this paper, we introduce the security lab to teach Wi-Fi Phishing attack using low cost Raspberry Pi. In addition, we introduce the learning topics students should learn before proceeding the lab and delivery method.
