The adoption of wireless networking has grown very rapidly in the last couple of years. There are many advantages to wireless networking, even beyond the obvious lack of having to bend over your desk to plug in your laptop. Many enterprises are using wireless to bridge two office buildings, to attract customers, and to provide easy-to-use network connectivity to roaming users. These advantages come with some pretty serious risk, and those responsible for information services should carefully determine if the benefit is worth the risk. There has been a great deal of press regarding wireless security, and many articles go as far as saying it is not worth the risk at all. This book aims to help readers decide how to approach wireless security and how to make a determination of whether or not it is appropriate for their enterprise. It will also serve readers who are currently responsible for a wireless network in helping them decide what level of security is appropriate for them.

Why We Wrote This Book

This book was written primarily to help readers wade through all of the negative information about wireless network security. There seems to be a new article or television expose about wireless security almost daily, and many of them offer conflicting information. We believe that wireless networks can be at least as secure as their wired counterparts, and we hope that this book will lead readers to a solution that makes wireless work for them, without creating an unmanageable security risk. There are many different approaches to writing a technical reference. Many readers prefer a step-by-step approach, while others prefer a detailed technical overview, without any instruction. This book takes an overview approach in the first few sections and leaves the reader with several step-by-step solutions at the end. The intent is to build the readers understanding of the concepts and finish with a complete solution that he or she can use in the enterprise. We intended for this book to be completely vendor neutral so it would be useful to a broad audience. The examples in this book are based on some of the most popular equipment at the time of this writing, such as Cisco and Orinoco products. However, if you do not possess the particular brand of equipment discussed, you may still find the information in those sections useful because many of the terms, configuration options, and features are similar in many different manufacturers equipment.

Who Should Read This Book

This book was written for security professionals new to wireless networking and for wireless network administrators new to security. It has a mix of step-by-step instruction and overview of security and networking concepts. It is focused on security problems and solutions, and the coverage of basic concepts is light. In other words, a reader should have at least a fundamental understanding of wireless networking, such as what an access point is and what the difference between ad hoc and infrastructure modes is. If you are completely new to wireless networking, you may find it useful to review another text before this one, or you may find it difficult to follow.

How This Book Is Organized

This book is organized into five parts as follows:

Part I: Introduction to Wireless Network Security

In this part, the fundamental security issues that face users of wireless technology are discussed. Many types of popular wireless communication are discussed, such as mobile phones, PDAs, Bluetooth, and wireless LANs.
Part II: Network Security Components

This part covers the components of network security for the wired network, such as firewalls, Intrusion Detection Systems (IDS), and policies.
Part III: Wireless Security Components

This part details the components that improve wireless network security. Basics, such as secure configuration and standards-based security mechanisms, are discussed.
Part IV: Integrating Wireless Access into the Network Security Process

This part provides details on how to make sure your wireless devices are kept as secure as your wired devices. Discussions on minimizing the risk of unintentional misconfiguration, recovering from disaster, collecting security events from wireless devices, and conducting self-assessments are included.
Part V: Wireless Security Models

This part includes chapters that provide models for implementing a secure wireless network in your enterprise. Each of the models is designed to fit a particular space, such as an all-Cisco enterprise or a wireless network for public access.

I would like to thank Katie Feltman and Kevin Kent, first and foremost, for their seemingly unending patience and insight as my Acquistions Editor and Project Editor for this book. I would also like to thank Scott Orr, my technical editor, for a great deal of much needed advice and for keeping me honest with many areas that I may have otherwise neglected. Also, I want to thank Craig Pennington and Jeff Ambern for helping me get all of the equipment and my boss, Greg Weber, for ignoring my grumpiness after many sleepless nights. Brian Carter I would like to thank, in alphabetical order, Tim Appleby, Jen Braun, Bob Friel, Terry Gudaitis, Mark Rasch, Frank Schugar, and Errol Weiss. Thanks to Joan Ross for acting as a technical editor and reviewing the work. Any errors or omissions are mine alone. As always, thanks to my wife, Amy McBurnie, for all her support and encouragement.

Part I: Introduction to Wireless Network Security

Chapter List:
Chapter 1: Introduction to Wireless Networking Chapter 2: Wireless Threat Analysis Chapter 3: Behind the Threat

In This Part:
Wireless data communication is a rapidly evolving technology that is enjoying wide deployment in all types of enterprise, small office, and residential networks. Like most developing information technologies, wireless suffers from many security problems that place the operator at risk. Hopefully, as wireless networking matures, most of the current security issues will be resolved, and the only new problems will be vendor or implementation specific. In the interim, this book offers detailed coverage of current security problems and how to manage each of them. Part I briefly introduces wireless networking, different types of wireless threats, and the types of people who take advantage wireless security problems.

Chapter 1: Introduction to Wireless Networking

In This Chapter There are several types of wireless communication in use today. Specifically, this chapter introduces you to the following:

802.11b or WiFi wireless networks HomeRF Bluetooth Wireless Application Protocol (WAP)

Its important to remember that this chapter aims to familiarize you with the most popular types in use today. It is not intended to be a detailed technical analysis of specific protocols or standards, nor will it cover technologies that only exist in small markets or those whose future is unclear.
