Encrypting wireless data

By stergios_nik ·
Hello All.

I have a wireless access point for providing Internet Access to a specific group of users.

I gave to those users the SSID and the password for connecting their laptop to the wireless access point.

Unfortunately, a user installed a sniffer on his laptop and succeeded in stealing the windows usernames and passwords of those users that were accessing the Outlook Web Access web mail system. The OWA service was not secured via a certificate.

I would like to ask how to prevent this problem from occuring in the future. Should I encrypt the OWA service using certificates? Is there any way to encrypt the wireless data that are transmitted on the air?

Thank you in advance.

Stergios
