John's book Guide to Wireless Network Security provides a step-by-step approach to everything you'll need to know about wireless network security. The book also has information about many topics relevant to wireless network planning, design, and implementation of intrusion detection systems and intrusion prevention systems. It also shows you how to conduct information warfare. The book is organized into eight parts as well as an outstanding and usable glossary of security, wireless network and Internet networking terms and acronyms.
As wireless networks are exploding in the market, this topic is by far the most prevalent for an IT Manager. Securing a corporation's data is vital and John addresses this issue very well in this book.
As a professional consultant, increasingly I have to deal with wireless networks. This book provides for me the details about wireless networking, all at my fingertips.No, it's not a complete guide on how to setup and install a wireless network, but it's not supposed to be. A book like that would be out of date before it went to print! Rather, this book lays out the necessary information for integrating wireless platforms into corporate and business enterprise--securely! It's all about the tools to use and what job to use them for. Knowing the right tool for the right job is half of what this book is about. The other half is about scenarios and procedures and security and the theory behind the technology. Everything you need to know whether you are involved in corporate firewalling of wireless networks, security, integration, etc. This book is a must-read for anyone involved in network architecture and planning.
From the fundamentals to the level of advance sciences, this book explains and illustrates what individuals and organizations can do to manage wireless network security. The comprehensive coverage of security provides a solid education for any student or professional in a world where wireless connectivity has become the norm.The explanations of technology, security policies, and practical procedures are excellent. The book also provides explanations of the most important security measures all organizations should implement.I highly recommend this book for networking professionals and those entering the field of network management. I also highly recommend it to curriculum planners and instructors for use in the classroom.
I highly recommend "Wireless Network Security" by John Vacca. I found the book to be very helpful in understanding wireless security and all of the different wireless network architectures. Not only does the book provide hands-on examples of how to configure and implement security solutions for wireless networks, the book also goes on to discuss different types of security attacks and how to circumvent them. "Wireless Network Security" is an excellent book that I would recommend as a must read to anyone dealing with the design, implementation and/or administration of wireless technology.
I couldn't put the book down. Vacca's Guide to Wireless Network Security is the one-stop-shopping reference to everything you need to know about the security impacts associated with wireless technology. Just back from a roadtrip across the US, I was astonished to find almost every motel/hotel now equipped with wireless access. Upon use, I would always wonder about their implementations regarding the *real* protection of my data exchanges. This book has educated me and frankly has scared me quite a bit. IT professionals, this is a terrific read. Highly readable and highly recommended
The future is here and it is wireless! Never before has technology exploded at such a meteoric rate and the security risks are following suit. If you think that your wireless system is inaccessible by unauthorized people close by you should think again. The ease of access to a wireless system increases the high probability of unauthorized intrusion by individuals with possible malicious intentions. John Vacca's book addresses this dilemma and gives us valuable resources for preventing information exposure.
