The only way to stop a hacker is to think like one!
Wireless technology is a new and rapidly growing field of concentration for network engineers and administrators. Innovative technology is now making the communication between computers a cordless affair. Wireless devices and networks are vulnerable to additional security risks because of their presence in the mobile environment.
Hack Proofing Your Wireless Network is the only book written specifically for architects, engineers, and administrators responsible for securing their wireless networks. From making sense of the various acronyms (WAP, WEP, SSL, PKE, PKI, SSL, SSH, IPSEC) to the implementation of security policies, plans, and recovery protocols, this book will help users secure their wireless network before its security is compromised. The only way to stop a hacker is to think like one...this book details the multiple ways a hacker can attack a wireless network - and then provides users with the knowledge they need to prevent said attacks.

Uses forensic-based analysis to give the reader an insight into the mind of a hacker
With the growth of wireless networks architects, engineers and administrators will need this book

This book looks promising but the editors were apparently asleep at the wheel. The overall topic coverage is okay. The main problems stem from two things. 1 - the book was obviously written by multiple authors because several chapters cover the same thing over and over. A significant portion of the book turns out to be the same information covered in different chapters. 2 - The typos and missing information pieces are terrible. For instance, chapter three has a table covering the 802.11 standards and just cuts off in the middle of the table; the last several entries are not included. Several chapters reverse 802.11a and 802.11b - often in the same chapter. Save yourself some money and pick up one of the other books such as O'Reilly's on the topic.
