WLAN Security and the FBI

Another article of interest from Tom's Networking... The security of wireless LANs is an interesting topic. I recently had a chance to see for myself how my WLAN security practices actually worked. I was pretty pleased.

In any case this article gives a look at how the FBI computer experts approach wireless access, WEP cracking, AP spoofing etc. It's mostly an overview (a future article will go step-by-step) but they do list the software tools used such as Kismet, Airsnort and, one I'll have to especially look at, the Auditor's Security Collection (an "FBI approved" Linux LiveCD).

The Feds can own your WLAN too : Tom's Networking
