Wireless networks are about convenience?security tends to be an afterthought. And it's not just WiFi: these security issues extend to Bluetooth, RFID and other wireless technologies. Find out about the basic tools and attacks that anyone with a laptop and a wireless card can use to take you down.
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is the encryption protocol defined in the original IEEE 802.11 standard for Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). Several known vulnerabilities and attack tools have compromised WEP making it unsuitable for secure WLAN implementations, without additional layers of security. AirDefenses patented WEP Cloaking solution is designed to make WEP virtually invulnerable to known attacks and tools, providing a robust layer of protection for legacy WLANs. The solution does not require any hardware or software modifications to the legacy WLAN infrastructure and is designed to work seamlessly through the AirDefense Enterprise Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS).
