Description

Seven Deadliest Wireless Technologies Attacks provides a comprehensive view of the seven different attacks against popular wireless protocols and systems. This book pinpoints the most dangerous hacks and exploits specific to wireless technologies, laying out the anatomy of these attacks, including how to make your system more secure. You will discover the best ways to defend against these vicious hacks with step-by-step instruction and learn techniques to make your computer and network impenetrable. 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; and attacks on analog wireless devices, cell phones, PDAs, and other hybrid devices. A 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 information security professionals of all levels, as well as wireless device developers and recreational hackers.
