Looking Back At Wireless Security In 2003
Wireless security is one of the hottest topics in our business. In the article you are just reading, I've tried to cover some of the most interesting wireless security topics and events in 2003. The article is divided into several thematical sections: general overview of the wireless security happenings, look back on some software tools, spotlight of two interesting books, a brief positive rant on corporate security world and a Q&A with three wireless security experts working at Funk Software, AirScanner Corporation and IBM.
The first news item added to Help Net Security in this year was "Wi-Fi: The National Security Threat". The topic of this news item, was literally copied all over and over throughout the year, so the majority of news stories dissed wireless security. This media "attack" on wire-free network security, eventually lead to a raise in wireless security awareness and better state of security in general.
