Course Description for Wireless Network Security

CNT6519: Wireless Network Security

Description: Wireless connectivity to servers and storage is becoming increasingly common these days. However, due to power, size and bandwidth limitations, the network and security management of wireless nodes have become fragile. As a starting point, wireless networks have adopted many security mechanisms from the wired world. But due to the inherent limitations, they are more vulnerable to attacks than the wired network. Threats like intercepting and unauthorized access to wireless traffic are real. More mature solutions to the security problems demand the need for understanding the current technologies and security flaws.
