Wi-Fi Client Device Security and Compliance With PCI DSS
Source: Summit Data Communications
Wi-Fi Client Device Security and Compliance With PCI DSS is every retailer's nightmare: An attacker exploits weak network security at a retail store to steal information from customers' payment cards (credit cards and debit cards). The theft affects everyone in the retail supply chain, including the retailer, its customers, banks, and payment card companies. The retailer, however, is the one hammered by bad publicity. In addition to costing the retailer business, the bad publicity sullies the retailer's reputation, forever linking its name to the theft. This white paper focuses on client devices that connect to a network using wireless LAN, or Wi-Fi, technology. A robust, standards-based approach to Wi-Fi client security aids in PCI DSS compliance by protecting the data that clients transmit and receive and the networks to which they connect.
