This project titled “Implementing Network Security using Ethical Hacking Techniques” deals with the security issues of the network while accessing it. Network security is an important component of any organization network. There are variety of attacks which are targeted into an organization network. In order to access the network securely, there is a need to identify the possible ways how unauthorized people can access you private data and information.

In this project, we basically uses the techniques like phishing, sniffing, analyzing local network risks, key scrambling, cracking wifi password etc. All these techniques will be implemented over to the network of HTL Infotech Pvt. Ltd. And then measures will be adopted to make it more secure.
