Security has been a human concern since the dawn of time. With the rise of the digital society, information security has rapidly grown to an area of serious study and ongoing research. While much research has focused on the technical aspects of

Hello, in this module we are going to discuss wireless networking. Specifically, we'll take a look at
how wireless technology works, how it is commonly deployed, and the security issues associated
with using it. Because wireless communications can penetrate opaque objects such as buildings, the

Password sniffing, spoofing, buffer overflows, and denial of service: these are only a few of the attacks on today's computer systems and networks.
