Book Description

The Wireless Security Handbook provides a well-rounded overview of wireless network security. It examines wireless from multiple perspectives, including those of an auditor, security architect, and hacker. This wide scope benefits anyone who has to administer, secure, hack, or conduct business on a wireless network.

This text tackles wireless risk from many angles. It discusses the mitigation of wireless risk at the policy level, cost-effective ways of deploying wireless across large enterprises, and financial controls that reduce unforeseen risks in wireless projects. The handbook also offers the technical details of how you can design, build, and hack nearly all wireless security components.

This volume also helps advance your career by covering all of the objectives of the three widely recognized wireless certifications--those administered by Planet3 Wireless and Cisco Systems. The book focuses on the wireless local area networking technologies that help you meet these objectives, while also analyzing almost all other facets of mobile communications.
