Also, with the growing reliance on e-commerce, wireless network-based services and the Internet, enterprises are faced with an ever-increasing responsibility to protect their systems from attack. 1. INTRODUCTION With the increasing deployment of wireless networks (802. 11 architecture) in enterprise environments, IT enterprises are working to implement security mechanisms that are equivalent to those existing today for wire-based networks.

Guide to Wireless Network Security. The steady growth of WiFi in the enterprise demands that corporate IT teams learn and adopt new security methodologies tailored to the unique requirements and weaknesses of wireless networks. Network and security staff must first evaluate a potentially confusing set of authentication and encryption mechanisms to be used in the network.

From the fundamentals to the level of advance sciences, this book explains and illustrates what individuals and organizations can do to manage wireless network security. The comprehensive coverage of security provides a solid education for any student or professional in a world where wireless connectivity has become the norm.

The explanations of technology, security policies, and practical procedures are excellent. The book also provides explanations of the most important security measures all organizations should implement.

I highly recommend this book for networking professionals and those entering the field of network management. I also highly recommend it to curriculum planners and instructors for use in the classroom.

As a professional consultant, increasingly I have to deal with wireless networks. This book provides for me the details about wireless networking, all at my fingertips.

No, it's not a complete guide on how to setup and install a wireless network, but it's not supposed to be. A book like that would be out of date before it went to print! Rather, this book lays out the necessary information for integrating wireless platforms into corporate and business enterprise--securely! It's all about the tools to use and what job to use them for. Knowing the right tool for the right job is half of what this book is about. The other half is about scenarios and procedures and security and the theory behind the technology. Everything you need to know whether you are involved in corporate firewalling of wireless networks, security, integration, etc. This book is a must-read for anyone involved in network architecture and planning.

I couldn't put the book down. Vacca's Guide to Wireless Network Security is the one-stop-shopping reference to everything you need to know about the security impacts associated with wireless technology. Just back from a roadtrip across the US, I was astonished to find almost every motel/hotel now equipped with wireless access. Upon use, I would always wonder about their implementations regarding the *real* protection of my data exchanges. This book has educated me and frankly has scared me quite a bit. IT professionals, this is a terrific read. Highly readable and highly recommended

John's book Guide to Wireless Network Security provides a step-by-step approach to everything you'll need to know about wireless network security. The book also has information about many topics relevant to wireless network planning, design, and implementation of intrusion detection systems and intrusion prevention systems. It also shows you how to conduct information warfare. The book is organized into eight parts as well as an outstanding and usable glossary of security, wireless network and Internet networking terms and acronyms.

I only gave this book three stars because the author is rather jaded, and I am not entirely sure how much of what he says does what he says.

As an example: He spoke of remotely erasing data from devices to prevent someone who stole the device from obtaining data somewhere in the first chapter. That is simply not going to help you. If some one steals a device for the data, erasing it is not going to help you, they are just going to use a utility to rewrite all the allocation table indexs back to 1's, and whalla the data is back (if there smart they wont even have to buy anything to do it, because DOS has that utility built in). When it comes to file protection, encryption is the only way to go... unfortunately when someone has the device, if there good enough they can get at the key.

Making data hard to get at is one thing, but believing that there is an absolute solution is obsurd.

The book was helpful in that it introduced me to many if not most or all of the concepts. As with every one else that is most likely reading or going to read this book, I have not messed with wireless to terably much, and I now have a good bases to start researching the topics further... because I definitely do not trust this mans judgement.

The author also often feels that he can predict the future and tell you with in a good 3-6 month period of when certain vulnerabilities are going to be exploited... such as wireless viruses being written on a regular basis in mid 2006. That one has already been proven false... I suppose that is more of an annoying writing style though, I am sure that at some point they will start poping up more readily... just not in mid 2006!

With wireless networks becoming the fastest growing trend in computing today, John Vacca's book is on time and on target. He takes the reader from wirelesss network security fundamentals all the way through future directions. It is a comprehensive book discussing network design, planning, implementation and maintenance. It should prove helpful to any IT administrator or manager.

"Wireless Network Security" is an excellent book that I would recommend as a must read to anyone dealing with the design, implementation and/or administration of wireless technology.
The future is here and it is wireless! Never before has technology exploded at such a meteoric rate and the security risks are following suit. If you think that your wireless system is inaccessible by unauthorized people close by you should think again. The ease of access to a wireless system increases the high probability of unauthorized intrusion by individuals with possible malicious intentions. John Vacca's book addresses this dilemma and gives us valuable resources for preventing information exposure.
