With the rapid deployment of wireless networks in business environments, IT professionals must implement security mechanisms that are equivalent to those existing today for wire-based networks. This volume is an authoritative, clearly-presented guide to key foundation topics and technology frameworks for designing and maintaining secure, reliable operations. From basic concepts to designing principles to deployment, all critical concepts and phases are explained in detail. The book also includes coverage of wireless security testing techniques and intrusion prevention techniques. Through extensive hands-on examples, Guide to Wireless Network Security demonstrates how to install, configure and troubleshoot firewalls and wireless network security applications; evaluate, implement and manage wireless secure remote access technologies; and deploy a variety of Virtual Private Networks, intrusion detection systems and intrusion prevention systems, in conjunction with information warfare countermeasures.
