Oldie but goodie wireless security resources

Kevin Beaver Kevin Beaver Profile: Kevin Beaver

With any responsible wireless network deployment comes security. Securing the access points, securing the computers and securing the communication sessions in between. With enterprise APs, wireless IPSs and related systems well beyond their adolescence, many enterprises have used them to their advantage and have this wireless security thing down pat. But based on what I see in my security assessment work, there are easily just as many that don’t.

Here are a few of my wireless security tips I’ve written for TechTarget, my blog, etc. that can help you ensure you’re on the right track with wireless security … once and for all:

Wireless insecurities aren’t going away – but that’s OK

Locking down laptops that connect to hotspots

Do you really need a VPN for secure wireless LAN communications?

Mobile security: Setting responsible goals

Mobile security: Top oversights

How to (ethically) hack wireless networks (webcast)

Wireless security blog posts

Finally, check out my book that I co-authored with Peter Davis: Hacking Wireless Networks For Dummies. Peter and I wrote this book over five years ago yet 95% of the concepts, hacks, and hardening tips we cover still apply.

Here’s to secure Wi-Fi!
