Linux & Wireless LANs
Information on wireless networking with linux. Includes detailed howtos, hardware
support lists and links to the various pieces of software needed.
Wireless LAN resources for Linux The Linux Wireless LAN Howto is an Open Source project sponsored by (through my contribution) since 1996, and built with the contribution of many Linux users all over the world
I first got involved in the Wireless LAN world by hacking the Wavelan drivers for Linux
I'm no longer active on the Wavelan drivers, but I'm also still following the work of Wireless LAN (called as well WLAN or Radio Ethernet), especially in relation with Linux
So, once every century, I update my Linux Wireless LAN Howto (html and pdf available below) and the collection of URLs (after the howto)
I've decided to collect all the information about Wireless LANs and Linux that I was able to find
The goal was also to document my work and to become famous :-) You will find all that information in the Linux Wireless LAN Howto , available in PostScript , PDF and HTML (see below)
The original Linux Wireless LAN Howto is available as 3 postscript or acrobat (PDF) documents, which contains the same material but with the original presentation
Lot's of people are working to make Linux better in supporting Wireless LANs, you will find down here some link to their web pages
Apple - AirPort Express
Wireless IEEE 802.11g DSSS networking from Apple and Lucent Technologies.
Create an instant wireless network on the go
Extend the range of your current wireless network
Featuring AirTunes for playing your iTunes music wirelessly on your home stereo or powered speakers, AirPort Express brings not only the Internet but your music to wherever in your home you like to enjoy them most — whether you use a Mac or Windows PC
Driving the Wi-Fi Revolution In 1999, Apple sparked the wireless revolution with the introduction of AirPort, the first affordable and easy-to-use solution for accessing the Internet without restrictive cables
In 2003, AirPort Extreme took your unwired connection to the next level by harnessing the superfast 802.11g wireless standard for data rates nearly five times those of the 802.11b standard that the original AirPort used and many current wireless networking devices still use
With AirPort Express, Apple continues to advance wireless, delivering the first device to pack wireless networking, audio, printing and bridging capabilities into a single affordable, portable unit
(1) All you have to do is connect your sound system to the audio port on the AirPort Express Base Station using an audio cable (included in the optional AirPort Express Stereo Connection Kit) and AirTunes lets you play your iTunes music through your stereo or powered speakers — wirelessly
Wireless Security Blackpaper : Page 1
Article covering basic 802.11b security, WEP, MAC address filtering, broadcast
key rotation and EAP based standards.
Wireless Security Blackpaper Wednesday, July 17, 2002 Introduction In 1999 the IEEE completed and approved the standard known as 802.11b, and WLANs were born
This was, and is, the vision of wireless networks, and what they are capable of delivering
While wireless networks have seen widespread adoption in the home user markets, widely reported and easily exploited holes in the standard security system have stunted wireless' deployment rate in enterprise environments
While many people don't know exactly what the weaknesses are, most have accepted the prevailing wisdom that wireless networks are inherently insecure and nothing can be done about it
Can wireless networks be deployed securely today? What exactly are the security holes in the current standard, and how do they work? Where is wireless security headed in the future? This article attempts to shed light on these questions and others about wireless networking security in an enterprise environment
Ad hoc networks have multiple wireless clients talking to each other as peers to share data among themselves without the aid of a central Access Point
Because the most common implementation requiring security is infrastructure mode, most security measures center around this design, so securing an infrastructure mode wireless network will be the focus of this article

Wireless Attacks and Penetration Testing (part 1 of 3)
A three part article on wireless penetration testing discussing the different
types of attacks that can be used, how to protect against them, and walks through ...
Search: Wireless Attacks and Penetration Testing (part 1 of 3) 2004-06-03 The very idea of a wireless network introduces multiple venues for attack and penetration that are either much more difficult or completely impossible to execute with a standard, wired network
Wireless networks only know the boundaries of their own signal: streets, parks, nearby buildings, and cars all offer a virtual 'port' into your wireless network
This is the first of a three part series on penetration testing for wireless networks
This installment will detail many common styles of attacks against wireless networks, introduce WEP key-cracking, and then discuss some recent developments in wireless security
The third installment will discuss mitigating strategies to protect your wireless network
Types of attacks There are three main types of attacks against wireless networks: denial of service attacks, man in the middle attacks, and ARP poisoning attacks
Wireless systems are particularly susceptible to DoS attacks because of the way different layers of the OSI stack interact with one another
First, and perhaps most obviously, an attack using the 'physical' layer in a wireless network is much easier than to attack the physical layer of a wired network -- the physical layer is the air, the general vicinity around a particular access point
Wireless Honeypot Countermeasures
Article discussing the use of honeypot technology to combat attacks on wireless
Search: Wireless Honeypot Countermeasures 2004-02-13 Wireless technologies have spread quickly in recent years and are now widely deployed in corporate environments as well as at home
The human dependency on those technologies has increased to the point where one can find wireless devices almost everywhere, from network devices to laptops, cameras, and so on
These threats come through the external physical barriers (from a parking lot, walking down the street, through windows) or inside your own environment (via zealous network seekers with PDAs or laptops, wireless cards and scanning software)
This paper will introduce honeypots as a countermeasure for wireless environments (more specifically, WiFi-related technologies)
1.0 Introduction to wireless honeypots The Internet is full of excellent resources that describe wireless technologies, wireless threats, wireless security offerings and honeypot technologies
This paper won't cover those points, but will instead focus on the core of the subject: wireless honeypots
In reading this paper, one can suppose you know what wireless networks are, that wireless security issues certainly exist and that there are security resources called honeypots to help mitigate this threat

The well-documented attack methodology centres on hackers fooling wireless network users into logging onto rogue access points set up to emulate legitimate wireless Lan equipment, warned Professor Brian Collins, head of information systems at Cranfield University
Once hackers have set up these wireless networks next to commercial hotspots, and conned users into logging on, they begin harvesting data from laptops connected to the compromised Wi-Fi network
"The 'evil twin' menace means that users can no longer assume that if they enter a wireless hotspot they are connecting to a bona fide wireless internet connection
"Enterprises that enable mobile working need to enforce a corporate security policy to ensure that a wireless hotspot does not become an open access point into their corporate network." | Trackback URL: http://www.vnunet.com/actions/trackback/2126563 R E A D E R C O M M E N T S M A R K E T P L A C E Search for Software, Hardware & Solutions Sponsored links Coventry | Coventry University DIRECTOR OF SERIOUS GAMES, COVENTRY, £57, 621 - £69, 807 Your impressive commercial record, ideally in the computer games sector or with experience of using Serious Games, has given you the insight to influence the future direction of..
