    Another great book in the security series

    With the advent of 9/11 and the increasing sophistication of hackers, John covers yet another vulnerability in his series of books on the topic of security. Wireless Network Security gives a very detailed and comprehensive account of designing and maintaining a secure environment in enterprises.

    Bible on Wireless Network Security

    A comprehensive and detailed discussion on Wireless Network Security. The author's presenatation of technical details is very easy to follow and understand even for a non-technical person. This textbook would be valuable to professional network engineer as a reference guide, since it captures and narrates the ever changing secuirty standards that would be very difficult to keep track of and remember. I would highly recommend the textbook for one semester course in MIS at an undergraduate level. I thoroughly enjoyed reading through all thirty-two chapters, and I found the refrences at the end of each chapter to very rewarding, since I would not have to search for information about wireless network security on the WEB. I know from practical experience for having to search for security standards on the WEB. I strongly recommend this textbook to anyone who either runs wireless networks or is planning to install, configure, and maintain wirless networks. Congratulations for an excellent text.
