Wireless Operational Security

Wireless Operational Security

This comprehensive wireless network book addresses the operational and day-to-day security management requirements of 21st century companies. Wireless networks can easily be reconfigured, are very mobile, allow for potentially nonstop exposure, and require the level of security be scrutinized even more than for wired networks. This includes inherent security flaws in various wireless architectures that result in additional risks to otherwise secure converged wired networks. An even worse scenario is one where an insecure wireless network is connected to a weakly secured or insecure wired network and the wireless subnet is not separated from the wired subnet. There are approximately a dozen popular books that cover components of the architecture, design, theory, issues, challenges, and recommended policies for wireless security, none of which address them in a practical, operationally-oriented and comprehensive way. Wireless Operational Security bridges this gap. *Presents a new "WISDOM" model for Wireless Security Infrastructures *Acts as a critical guide to implementing "Converged Networks" wired/wireless with all necessary security considerations *Rittinghouse's Cybersecurity Operations Handbook is the only security book recommended by the FCC

Building on a comprehensive review of the underlying technologies, this practical guide contains ‘how to’ implementation information, including a case study that looks at the specific requirements for a voice over wireless LAN application. This invaluable resource will give engineers and managers all the necessary knowledge to design, implement and operate high performance wireless networks. · Explore in detail wireless networking technologies and understand the concepts behind RF propagation. · Gain the knowledge and skills required to install, use and troubleshoot wireless networks. · Learn how to address the problems involved in implementing a wireless network, including the impact of signal propagation on operating range, equipment inter-operability problems and many more. · Maximise the efficiency and security of your wireless network.

IM Instant Messaging Security

IM Instant Messaging Security

There is a significant need for a comprehensive book addressing the operational and day-to-day security management requirements. IM, used in enterprise networks can easily be reconfigured and allow for potentially nonstop exposure; they require the level of security be scrutinized carefully. This includes inherent security flaws in various network architectures that result in additional risks to otherwise secure converged networks. A few books cover components of the architecture, design, theory, issues, challenges, and recommended policies for IM security, but none of them address IM issues in a manner that is useful for the day-to-day operations and management of enterprise networks. IM Security is intended to bridge this gap. There are no current books that cover components of the architecture, design, theory, issues, challenges, and recommended policies for IM security. No book we know of addresses IM security in a manner useful for day-to-day operations and management of IM-capable networks in today’s corporate environment. Up-to-date coverage of architecture, design, theory, issues, challenges, and recommended policies for IM security Addresses IM security for day-to-day operations and management of IM-capable networks in today’s corporate environment

Security and Software for Cybercafes

Security and Software for Cybercafes

Cybercafes, which are places where Internet access is provided for free, provide the opportunity for people without access to the Internet, or who are traveling, to access Web mail and instant messages, read newspapers, and explore other resources of the Internet. Due to the important role Internet cafes play in facilitating access to information, there is a need for their systems to have well-installed software in order to ensure smooth service delivery. Security and Software for Cybercafes provides relevant theoretical frameworks and current empirical research findings on the security measures and software necessary for cybercafes, offering information technology professionals, scholars, researchers, and educators detailed knowledge and understanding of this innovative and leading-edge issue, both in industrialized and developing countries.
