Wireless Security? This book *is* the bible!,
This review is from: Wi-Foo: The Secrets of Wireless Hacking (Paperback)
If either your job title contains any of the words "Network", "Systems", "Administrator" or you play with networks as a hobby, and you've ever had anything to do with installing, commissioning or working with wireless networks - listen up: The Bad Guys are after your Wireless LAN.
In this ground-breaking book, the three authors will tell you three main things: who is after your Wireless Network, How they can get in, and (most importantly) how to keep them out.
This is the first book I've ever read that re-defines Wireless penetration testing almost as an art-form. You'll learn the equipment to use, where to get it and how to set it up, the software tools to use (and those to avoid) and how to test and secure many different kinds of Wireless network. Importantly, the authors place as much importance on keeping out the Bad Guys as teaching you just how they get in. Also covered are detection techniques, hardware hacks, and steps to take in the event of a break in.
By the end of the book, you'll have the equipment and knowledge to audit Wireless Networks, discover security holes, and fix them.
If you have any interest at all in Wireless Networking, or your job includes the management of Wirless Equipment - BUY THIS BOOK NOW!
