WLAN security and Cyber Security

Speaker:  Gururaj H L – Mysuru, India
Topic(s):  Security and Privacy


Wireless LANs have gone through rapid changes with respect to their security architecture in recent years. One view has been to incorporate WLANs under already existing VPN umbrellas and to view them merely as an alternative access method. Another view has been to address the security of the airwaves which has been demonstrated to be extremely vulnerable.

Cyber security for data networks is in its infancy while attackers on networks are becoming increasingly sophisticated. The necessary widespread use of wireless networks provides more vulnerability. Network routing is key to a functioning network; once compromised, it can be difficult to recover. For many years, network practitioners have worked on methods to protect that routing through authentication of the updates passed in the network. The missing piece has been a usable, protectable key management system.  Insight on cyber space, cybercrime and cyber law will be given
