A very challenging issue in IT industry is wireless security. Because of the specific technical principles involved in building a wireless network, the security problem needs a special type of approach. The purpose of this session is to understand security issues in wireless networks and standards-based functionality and counter-measures to address these security issues. Please read Session 10 Lecture Notes, and , at the minimum, the NIST draft document on Wireless Network Security of IEEE 802.11 Networks:
What are the security issues with wireless LANs and WANs in a data processing environment? What are the recommended solutions to the issues identified?
