Information Burglary

On Wireless Network Security

ABSTRACT

We discuss practical security of 802.11b wireless networks through three anecdotal case studies. The dangers facing a university faculty, a small business and a home user are explored. Information Burglary—industrial espionage against telecommuters—is introduced. We investigate the underlying causes of security holes, spanning theoretic algorithmic flaws, deployment errors and end-user naivety. Failures to appreciate the range of radio coverage are highlighted and features interactions with other technologies are explored. Technical and ethical suggestions for improvements by the industry and network administrators are made.
