Meet Steve, CIO of IT at a large University.  Like you, his number one priority is to deliver a stable wireless network for students and staff.  Not easy to do. Steve and his team of IT professionals struggle to keep up with ever increasing demands on the network; number of students connected, devices per student, security threats, high-density zones, and skyrocketing bandwidth as mobile is now at the center of learning and leisure.

The End is Near… for Big Logos and Overpriced Hardware
Posted by Louise Peter on May 3, 2018

At Mojo Networks we’ve been on our soapbox for some time preaching that the end is near… at least for vendor lock-in and egregious hardware margins. Massive innovation is happening in the realm of software with the cloud enabling new ways we can harness data for quicker and more intelligent decision-making. Alternatively, hardware innovations come at a slower pace, but Big Logos have enjoyed huge margins on hardware where they have little to no value add. As hardware becomes commoditized, in many cases with little differentiation between Access Points produced by different manufacturers, it seems inevitable that the day of reckoning for vendor lock-in is near.

It Just Works!
Posted by Robin Jellum on Feb 12, 2018

I just watched the Marysville Schools video case study. "It just works", "Plug and play" were the words that the IT Director and Network Administrator used to describe Mojo Networks WiFi. It is great to see an amazing vision come to fruition.

It reminded me of the Steve Jobs quote: “Simple can be harder than complex: You have to work hard to get your thinking clean to make it simple. But it’s worth it in the end because once you get there, you can move mountains.”

The Not-So-Fast Times at Ridgemont High
Posted by Louise Peter on Dec 19, 2017

Many of us recall the scene from Fast Times at Ridgemont High when Jeff Spicoli, played by Sean Penn, gets the munchies and orders pizza to be delivered to Mr. Hand’s classroom. If this happened today, Spicoli would have ordered pizza from his iPhone without leaving his seat. And Spicoli’s phone? It would be connected to the school’s WiFi network. And with the growing number of student and school issued devices accessing the WiFi network, WiFi performance would be… well, less than Greased Lighting (but that’s for another blog).

Securing K-12 WiFi - A Scary Movie Blog
Posted by Louise Peter on Oct 31, 2017

It is a classic urban legend horror scene - a young woman is home alone (she is usually a babysitter). She receives creepy phone calls asking "Have you checked the kids?" The babysitter calls the police and the police set up watch outside the house to keep the babysitter safe. The police trace the phone calls and to their horror, they discover that the calls are not coming from another location, but they are coming from inside the house.

About One CVE at the Tail End of KRACK: 13088
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Oct 27, 2017

In my last video blog on KRACK attack, I explained the technical details of workings and countermeasures for 9 out of 10 CVEs. The one I did not discuss in detail was CVE-2017-13088. At the time there wasn't enough information available on it and though it looked like the twin of CVE-2017-13087, due to differences between how group keys are distributed in MFP mode versus non-MFP mode, it required separate consideration.  After receiving more details from the researcher (@vanhoefm), I am prepared to share  information about CVE-2017-13088 and the appropriate countermeasures.

A+ WiFi on the Big Days and Every Day
Posted by Jeff Olson on Oct 24, 2017

Johnny is excited - well, not really - because tomorrow is state-wide, academic-testing day at his school. For weeks now, his teachers have told him just how important this day is for him and his school. Even his parents were instructed on how they can help prepare Johnny for the big day: ensure he gets enough sleep, has a quality breakfast, and arrives to school on-time. Johnny isn’t thrilled by this extra attention.

WPA2 Key Reinstallation Vulnerabilities (KRACK) Explained
Posted by Hemant Chaskar on Oct 16, 2017

Researchers from the University of Leuven (@vanhoefm and team) have discovered flaws in WPA2 implementation in clients and APs. These flaws create vulnerabilities for replay and decryption attacks on packets transferred over WiFi links. They have named them KRACKs (Key Reinstallation AttaCKs). Both 802.1x (EAP) and PSK (password) based networks are affected. These vulnerabilities have been cataloged under 10 CVEs. In the series of videos below, I explain these CVEs in detail with Vivek Ramachandran, Founder and CEO of Pentester Academy.
