Description

Security is always a concern with any new technology. When we think security we typically think of stopping an attacker from breaking in or gaining access. However, based on the broad reach of wireless, stopping someone from passively listening is just as critical. Intrusion detection systems, firewalls, and forensics are just a few of the key areas that must be understood and applied to proactively solve the wireless problem.

From short text messaging to war driving, Wireless Crime and Forensic Investigation explores all aspects of wireless technology, how it is used in daily life, and how it will be used in the future. The book provides a one-stop resource on the types of wireless crimes that are being committed and forensic investigation techniques for wireless devices and wireless networks. The author's straightforward and easy to read style seamlessly integrates the topics of wireless security and computer forensics. He provides a solid understanding of modern wireless technologies, wireless security techniques and wireless crime techniques, as well as conducting forensic analysis on wireless devices and networks. Each chapter, while part of a greater whole, can stand on its own, making researching wireless technologies, security, crime, or forensics easy.

With a problem space as big and complex as wireless, proactive measures must be put in place, and put in place immediately. To protect your organization, you need to be well versed in the new technology sooner rather than later. You can pay now or you can pay later. Later always costs more. This book not only has all the information required to become proficient in wireless technology, but also provides the information required for conducting a forensic analysis in a wireless environment.
