Wireless Security Handbook
by Aaron E. Earle

Wireless Security Handbook examines wireless from multiple perspectives, including those of an auditor, security architect, and hacker.

Features:

  • Provides a well-rounded overview of wireless network security
  • Describes wireless physical layer technologies and management frames
  • Covers the wireless deployment process, access points, and antenna theory
  • Reviews the various 802.11 LAN standards as well as those of Personal Area Network (PAN) 802.15
  • Examines wide area wireless technologies and standards including cell phone, GPS, 802.16 Air Interface, and 802.20
  • Discusses aspects of wireless LAN security such as authentication, SSID, WEP, 802.1x, RADIUS, and more
  • Analyzes scanning, sniffing, hybrid, denial-of-service, cracking, and access point attacking tools
