Get in-depth technical guidance for deploying a security-enhanced wireless network for your corporate, public, or small business network—direct from the Microsoft Windows Networking and Communications team. This essential reference details the latest IEEE 802.11 and related technologies for public and private wireless LANs, including the new Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) standard. You’ll learn how to design and deploy an authentication infrastructure—including how to configure clients, Internet Authentication Service (IAS) servers, Active Directory directory service users and groups, certificate services, wireless access points, and other components—using best practices and real-world troubleshooting tactics from the extensive wireless LAN deployment at Microsoft.
Get the technical drill-down you need to:
Configure wireless client support for Windows XP, Windows Server 2003, and Windows 2000
Build the authentication infrastructure—including IAS RADIUS servers and proxies, Active Directory users and groups, and a public key infrastructure (PKI)
Determine the placement of wireless access points
Configure a Windows PKI to issue certificates for authentication of wireless access
Use the EAP-TLS or PEAP-MS-CHAP v2 authentication protocol to help maximize security for a wireless intranet
Design wireless intranets for business partners, cross-forest authentication, or large-scale deployment
Help mitigate network attacks by using the new Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and Michael features of WPA
Troubleshoot Windows wireless clients, wireless access points, and the authentication infrastructure
