Military leaders agree that wireless communication is the wave of the future, but they also agree that it needs far greater security features to become deployable and reliable on the battlefield.

    Air Force Maj. Gen. John Bradley, deputy commander of U.S. Strategic Command's joint task force for computer network operations, said the Defense Department not only needs more secure wireless tools, it also needs them to be smaller with solid encryption and authentication features.

    The joint task force, created about 18 months ago, is responsible for defending DOD networks from attack, according to Bradley, who was speaking during a Nov. 19 panel at the AFCEA International's TechNet Asia-Pacific International 2002 Conference and Exposition in Honolulu.
