Wireless networks are much more common now than was true 5 to 10 years ago. There are wireless networks available in coffee shops, airports, and hotels, as well as a variety of other public venues. In addition, many home users now have wireless networks to connect a broad range of devices, such as smartphones, tablets, and computers within their dwelling. Consider your own use of wireless networks; do you use a smartphone or a tablet? Do your methods of securing your handheld devices differ from any methods that you may use when connecting wirelessly with a computer? Do you use a wireless network at your workplace? If so, what methods are used in your workplace for securing the wireless “cloud”? Would you suggest any improvements in the wireless security that you use for home and/or work?
Based on your research, write a 3–5 page paper that researches the concept of wireless security, as well as providing an analysis and comparison of several wireless security technologies currently available.
