Overview

Overview

Definition

WLAN security involves the following:
  • Perimeter security: An 802.11 network is subject to threats from unauthorized APs and users, ad-hoc networks, and denial of service (DoS) attacks. A wireless intrusion detection system (WIDS) can detect unauthorized users and APs. A wireless intrusion prevention system (WIPS) can protect an enterprise network against unauthorized access from wireless networks.
  • User access security: Link authentication, access authentication, and data encryption are used to ensure validity and security of user access on wireless networks.
  • Service security: This feature protects service data of authorized user from being intercepted by unauthorized users during transmission.

Purpose

WLAN networks are easy to deploy and expand, flexible, and cost-effective. As WLAN technology uses radio signals to transmit service data, service data can easily be intercepted or tampered by attackers when being transmitted on the open wireless channels. Security has become a major factor that hinders WLAN technology development.

WLAN technology can provide the following mechanisms to guarantee data security for wireless users:
  • WIDS and WIPS mechanisms that detect and defend against intrusion from unauthorized users
  • Security policies for wireless users, including link authentication, access authentication, and data encryption
  • Security mechanisms for wireless services.
