Seven Deadliest Wireless Technologies Attacks provides a comprehensive view of the different attacks against popular wireless protocols and systems. Each chapter includes an example real attack scenario; an analysis of the attack; and methods for mitigating the attack. Common themes will emerge throughout the book, but each wireless technology has its own unique quirks that make it useful to attackers in different ways, making understanding all of them important to overall security as rarely is just one wireless technology in use at a home or office.
The book contains seven chapters that cover the following: infrastructure attacks, client attacks, Bluetooth attacks, RFID attacks; along with attacks on analog wireless devices, cell phones, PDAs, and other hybrid devices. One chapter deals with the problem of bad encryption. It demonstrates how something that was supposed to protect communications can end up providing less security than advertised.
This book is intended for novices and anyone in a technical role either as the family tech support to corporate IT managers. It also assumes some familiarity with basic networking and computer use.

  1. 802.11 Wireless—Infrastructure Attacks
