Title:
Choosing the right wireless LAN security protocol for the home and business user
Authors:
Maple, Carsten; Jacobs, Helen; Reeve, Matthew
Abstract:
The introduction and evolution of security standards for wireless networking has been a problematic process. Flaws in the initial security standard resulted in quick-fix solutions and interoperability issues. As wireless networks are not confined to a building, there is an added security risk that radio signals can be detected externally. Wireless networking has rapidly increased in popularity over the last few years due to the flexibility it provides. Given the simultaneous growth of e-government services there is particular risk to the citizen of identity theft. This article discusses the progression of wireless security protocols since their introduction and the effect this has had on home and business users. The risks of using wireless networks are outlined in the paper and recommendations for securing wireless networks are reviewed.
