Imagine that your university uses 802.11b wireless access points and wireless network cards to allow students and faculty to stay connected as they roam the campus. With this scenario in mind, answer the following:
1. Considering that an abuser may be able to drive near the campus and connect to the wireless network and surf the internet without charge, would you consider this enough of a risk to employ security mechanisms to prevent this type of communication theft? Why or why not?
2. If faculty can also access their systems that contain valuable university research, grades and students' personal information, how would you ensure that students could not access this information via the wireless network?
3. Would you employ encryption on the wireless network? Why or why not?
4. What other technologies could you deploy to ensure only university staff or students can access the wireless network?
