Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. The most common types of wireless security are Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) and Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA). WEP is one of the least secure forms of security.Many laptop computers have wireless cards pre-installed. The ability to enter a network while mobile has great benefits. However, wireless networking is prone to some security issues. Crackers have found wireless networks relatively easy to break into, and even use wireless technology to crack into wired networks......
A Brief History of Security
“Well, I never heard it before,” said the Mock Turtle, “but it sounds uncommon
—Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland.
Secret communication achieved by hiding the existence of a message is known as
steganography. The word is derived from the Greek word “steganos,” meaning cov-
ered and “graphin” meaning to write.
After studying chapter 4 you should be able to: Describe the basic IEEE 802.11 wireless security protections; define the vulnerabilities of open system authentication, WEP, and device authentication; describe the WPA and WPA2 personal security models; explain how enterprises can implement wireless security.
When the concept of a network without wires was first suggested more than two
decades ago, it sparked the imagination of scientists, product vendors, and users
around the globe eager for the convenience and flexibility of a free roaming connection.
Unfortunately, as the variety of wireless solutions began to emerge, anticipation
turned to disappointment.The first wave of solutions proved inadequate
for the networking, portability, and security needs of a changing IT environment.
This book was written to give the reader a well-rounded understanding
of wireless network security. It looks at wireless from multiple perspectives,
ranging from auditor, to security architect, to hacker. This wide
scope benefits anyone who has to administer, secure, hack, or participate
on a wireless network. Going through this book, the reader will see that
it tackles the risk of wireless from many angles. It goes from a policy
level to mitigate certain risks that wireless brings. It talks about the most
cost-effective solutions to deploy wireless across a large enterprise.
The expansion and popularity of the Internet, along with the addition of wireless data functionality to wireless networks, has also contributed greatly to the growth of the wireless industry. In fact, the anticipated consumer demand for high bandwidth wireless data is commonly seen as the driving force behind current network upgrades and expansions. The number and types of companies aggressively investing in wireless technologies illustrate the importance of wireless data.
Beginning with an introduction to 802.11b in general, 802.11 Security gives you a broad basis in theory and practice of wireless security, dispelling some of the myths along the way. In doing so, they provide you with the technical grounding required to think about how the rest of the book applies to your specific needs and situations. If you are a network, security, or systems engineer, or anyone interested in deploying 802.11b--based systems, you'll want this book beside you every step of the way....
This second edition of Network security hacks offers 125 concise and practical hacks, including more information for Windows administrators, hacks for wireless networking (such as setting up a captive portal and securing against rogue hotspots), and techniques to ensure privacy and anonymity, including ways to evade network traffic analysis, encrypt email and files, and protect against phishing attacks. System administrators looking for reliable answers will also find concise examples of applied encryption, intrusion detection, logging, trending and incident response.
Wireless e-business allows people to communicate and transact in business via
wireless technology, without physical connectivity, such as wires or cabling.
Wireless e-business uses many devices, including mobile phones, pagers, palmpowered
personal computers (PCs), pocket PCs, laptop computers, and other mobile
devices or devices connected to the wireless networks
In this thought-provoking anthology, today's security experts describe bold and extraordinary methods used to secure computer systems in the face of ever-increasing threats. Beautiful Security features a collection of essays and insightful analyses by leaders such as Ben Edelman, Grant Geyer, John McManus, and a dozen others who have found unusual solutions for writing secure code, designing secure applications, addressing modern challenges such as wireless security and Internet vulnerabilities, and much more.

Mạng không dây là một hệ thống mạng mà ở đó các máy tính có thể nói chuyện, giao tiếp với nhau và cùng chia sẻ các nguồn tài nguyên như máy in hay các file dữ liệu mà không cần dùng dây cáp mạng. Thông qua các thiếp bị giao tiếp cơ bản như Access Point ( dùng để phát tín hiệu), Card mạng không dây ( dùng cho máy PC để bàn), Card PCMCI dùng cho máy tính xách tay không có card wireless tích hợp, USB wireless thì chúng ta đã có một hệ thống mạng không...
Over the last couple of years, manufacturers have produced some
incredibly sophisticated wireless networking equipment. Consumers’
ongoing demand for low-cost, high-speed, easy-to-use networking
gear has forced hardware manufacturers to continually refine their
designs. Engineers have produced tiny devices that use very little
power to perform amazing feats of ingenuity, producing them on such
a large scale that the cost is staggeringly low.
This is a book about hacking. It’s not a novel about a set of elusive
cyberpunks, it’s a do-it-yourself manual. Are we trying to tell you how
to break into other people’s systems? No, we’re trying to help you
make your own systems more secure by breaking into them yourself.
Yes, this has the side effect that you might learn how to break into
someone else’s system as well, and therein lies much of the controversy
"Network and system security" provides focused coverage of network and system security technologies. It explores practical solutions to a wide range of network and systems security issues. Chapters are authored by leading experts in the field and address the immediate and long-term challenges in the authors’ respective areas of expertise. Coverage includes building a secure organization, cryptography, system intrusion, UNIX and Linux security, Internet security, intranet security, LAN security; wireless network security, cellular network security, RFID security, and more.
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
risk of someone accessing a private network increases markedly. With wireless, an attacker does not
need to gain access to physical cables or jacks, but only needs to have an antenna and be within
range of the transmissions....
Over the last ten years, the impact of wireless communications on
the way we live and do business has been surpassed only by the impact
of the Internet. Cell phones, pagers, and wireless Personal Digital
Assistants (PDAs) have become so commonplace in our lives that it is
easy to forget that ten years ago, they were a rarity.
This module introduces the Wireless LAN (WLAN) industry.
It is designed to give the student a brief overview of the history of WLAN products and the
