Of course Perl doesn't have much to do with WiFi security ... but our
meeting Tomorrow (Feb. 16th) has a conflict with the following. So
we might expect a few less people. Or maybe since the WIFi talk
continues after 1:00 post-lunch (and probably really does not start
until then) people who are interested in it can come to PM and then
leave for WiFi.
Just a reminder that we have Bob Morrow coming tomorrow to talk about
Wi-Fi Security from
noon to 2:30.
Wi-Fi (IEEE 802.11) is by far the most common wireless computer
network, and the relentless
tide of sophisticated attacks make security of this system critically
important. Dr Bob Morrow will address
several Wi-Fi security threats, including disclosure, data integrity,
and denial-of-service attacks that can
bring a network to its knees. Simple propagation analysis can
determine a target network's vulnerability to
eavesdropping and jamming. The weaknesses of wired equivalent
privacy (WEP) are legendary, and Bob
will discuss how these are addressed through the IEEE 802.11i
standard with improved authentication,
key distribution, and encryption. methods. Finally, he will provide a
summary of simple ways that wireless
security can be improved beyond simply implementing 802.11i.
Come bring a lunch, here what this expert in security has to share.
be held in STEWART 310.
