Wire-Side Containment - Hidden Gem of Rogue Access Point Protection
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Oct 16, 2014

The FCC’s decision to impose a fine on Marriott Hotels for unscrupulous Wi-Fi containment has set off numerous debates. Many in the WLAN community have opined on its implications for the use of unlicensed spectrum (see references below and follow Twitter discussion on the topic). These parleys have touched upon performance impact, security challenges and Wi-Fi monetization practices.

Google Pushing HTTPS Further

Implications for Public Facing Wi-Fi Security, Advertising and Analytics

You may have already noticed - Google search has been strictly using HTTPS for some time now. Typically, people do not enter passwords in keyword search and so people probably were not terribly worried about search sites not using HTTPS (Bing still allows HTTP). Nonetheless, Google seems to have taken position in favor of HTTPS. YouTube also allows HTTPS (though HTTP option is also available today). When YouTube page is accessed over HTTPS, videos also stream over HTTPS (a way to check this is funny name option called "Stats for nerds" which shows on right click on YouTube video). One could also say Google is making a point here that HTTPS isn’t necessarily the scalability bottleneck today.

Wi-Fi Hacking 101 – Ethical of Course! (+ Video)
Posted by Zara on Jun 4, 2014

Watch the video from Wi-Fi Hacking 101 event series with Rick Farina, AirTight Networks senior wireless security researcher and resident hacker.

“Security? Who cares,” I hear most people say. They would quickly change their mind if they had met Rick Farina, AirTight’s ethical hacker (known on Twitter as @RickLikesWIPS). UK resellers got the opportunityat a series of Wi-Fi Hacking Events in May. The audience definitely got more than they bargained for with these workshops.

In attendance were partners who sell into all verticals varying from schools and colleges to banks and retailers. Rick was not only able to demonstrate the importance of providing a secure wireless solution, he showed the audience a range of wireless threats that hackers from around the globe may use to steal sensitive data.

Network troubleshooting in distributed Wi-Fi environments
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Nov 20, 2013

Wi-Fi is installed after everything else in the network is already set up – switches, routers, servers, firewalls, VPNs etc. Naturally, customers rely on their Wi-Fi solution provider to alleviate any network problems that arise during the Wi-Fi deployments, even though the problems are not necessarily Wi-Fi specific.

Need Wi-Fi troubleshooting? Call up a networking Jedi!

Network issues aren’t something new in any project. However, the troubleshooting task becomes challenging when it needs to be done remotely and when there isn’t much onsite IT help. This is often the case with the distributed Wi-Fi deployments. Also, due to the heterogeneity of the network infrastructure in many environments in the distributed vertical, sometimes very stealthy network problems are encountered. Take these recent troubleshooting examples which underscore these points.

Blackhat Wi-Fi Security Reports and Nuances of Detection Methods

Shortly following the conclusion of Blackhat’13, a few articles came out reporting wireless scanning data from the venue.

Inside the Black Hat 2013 Wi-Fi Network

Karma is a …Errr, What We Learned at BlackHat 2013

 

Both reports state that many security relevant events were detected in the Wi-Fi traffic during the conference. Given that Blackhat is attended by security experts, ethical hackers and just plain security geeks, finding security signatures in the traffic is not uncommon. Nonetheless, I think a few things still need to be matched up in these stats before arriving at sound conclusions.
