Free registration required

Executive Summary

The Motorola WLAN solution features the industry leading AirDefense Wireless Intrusion Prevention System (WIPS). Motorola AirDefense WIPS capabilities also help contain the attack. The WIPS is capable of detecting MAC address spoofing that occurs when the adversary pretends to be an authorized device during the attack. The AirDefense WIPS can also detect replay attacks and trigger if a configurable number of injections in a set window of time exceeds a programmable threshold. The WIPS can generate an alarm, send SNMP traps to notify various security event management systems, alert an administrator via email/pager, etc. In addition, the offending device can be blacklisted, and all further frames from it are ignored for the blacklist timeout period.
