Access point mapping also called as War driving, is the act of locating and possibly exploiting connections to wireless local area networks while driving around a city or elsewhere.
To do war driving, you need a vehicle, a computer (which can be a laptop), a wireless Ethernet card set to work in promiscuous mode, and some kind of an antenna which can be mounted on the top of or positioned inside the car.
Because wireless LAN may have a range that extends beyond an office building, an outside user may be able to intrude into the network, obtain a free Internet connection, and possibly gain the access to company records and the other resources.
