Analysis of Current Wireless Network Security
Most threats against wireless networks involve an attacker with access to the radio link between wireless devices. Several of the threats listed in following rely on an attacker's ability to intercept and inject network communications. This highlights the most significant difference between protecting wireless and wired networks: the relative ease of intercepting wireless network transmissions and inserting new or altered transmissions from what is presumed as the authentic source. Wireless technologies bring great convenience, but they also introduce many new risks and vulnerabilities.
