Network administrators and users are responsible for securing the wireless networks that they use. Learn how to use basic wireless security techniques including limiting the use of SSID broadcasting, the use of MAC filtering and using VPNs to secure wireless connections.
- [Instructor] Before we dive in to the ways…that you can use wireless encryption…to protect the confidentiality of wireless networks,…let's spend a moment talking about some of the basic ways…that network administrators and users…can secure wireless networks.…First, wireless networks typically advertise themselves…in order to make users aware…that they are running in an area.…Wireless networks do this by broadcasting an identifier…known as the Service Set Identifier or SSID.…This is simply a short name used…to identify the wireless network…and you probably know it as just…the wireless network name.…
If we take a quick look at the wireless networks…available in my neighborhood,…I'm just going to pull down…this network name drop down menu here,…and you can see all of these different networks…are visible to me.…These are networks running in other buildings in this area,…and each one of them is broadcasting it's SSID.…For example, ABW is the SSID of this network.…HOME-1C32 is the SSID of this network.…There's no requirement that you broadcast your SSID.…
Learn about communication and networking best practices, including TCP/IP networking, network security devices, and secure network design and management. Instructor and cybersecurity expert Mike Chapple also includes coverage of converged protocols, network encryption, and wireless networking.
