Wireless Security Essentials: Defending Mobile Systems from Data Piracy by Russell Dean Vines
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


There have already been several attacks on wireless devices including Phage, 911, Vapor and Palm.Liberty.A - the first known Trojan horse designed to erase the memory of Palm devices. As usage increases, and applications for wireless devices become more robust, the potential for malicious code attack is high. This book guides readers through current wireless technologies and standards, security risks, available security measures, and vunerabilities that have yet to be addressed. It emphasizes how to identify the vulnerabilities and mitigate them by building security into the network infrastructure and connected devices.
