Security Chap 9

bluejacking an attack that sends unsolicited messages to Bluetooth-enabled devices
bluesnarfing attack that accesses unauthorized info from a wireless device through a Bluetooth connection
Bluetooth a wireless technology that uses short range radio frequency transmissions and provides rapid ad hoc device pairings
captive portal AP an infrastructure that is used on public access WLANs to provide a higher degree of security
CHAP a weak authentication protocol that has been replaced by the EAP
CCMP encryption protocol used for WPA2 that specifies the use of a general-purpose cipher mode algorithm providing data privacy with AES
evil twin an AP setup by an attacker to mimic an authorized AP and capture transmissions, so a users device will unknowingly connect to this evil twin instead of the authorized AP
EAP a framework for transporting authentication protocols that defines the format of the messages
IV a 24-bit value used in WEP that changes each time a packet is encrypted
LEAP a proprietary EAP method developed by Cisco Systems requiring mutual authentication used for WLAN encryption using Cisco client software
MAC address filtering a methood for controlling access to a WLAN based on the device's MAC address
NFC a set of standards primarily for smartphones and smart cards that can be used to establish communication between devices in close proximity
PAP a weak authentication protocol that has been replaced by the EAP
PSK the authentication model used in WPA that requires a secret key value to be entered into the AP and all wireless devices prior to communicating
PEAP an EAP method designed to simplify the deployment of 802.1x by using microsoft Windows logins and passwords
Rf jamming intentionally flooding the radio frequency spectrum with extraneous RF signal "noise" that creates interference and prevents communications from occurring
rogue access point an unauthorized AP that allows an attacker to bypass many of the network security configurations and opens the network and its users to attacks
SSID the alphanumeric user-supplied network name of a WLAN
Site survey an in-depth examination and analysis of a wireless LAN site
TKIP the WPA and WPA2 encryption technology
war chalking process of documenting and advertising the location of wireless LANs for others to use
war driving searching for wireless signals from an automobile or on foot using a portable computing device
WPA the origional set of protections from the wi-fi Alliance designed to address both encryption and authentication
WPA2 the second generation of WPA security from the Wi-Fi Alliance that addresses authentication and encryption on WLANs and is currently the most secure model for WI-Fi security
WPS an optional means of configuring security on wireless local area networks primarily intended to help others who have little to no knowledge of security to quickly and easily in=mplement security on their WLANs.
WEP an IEEE 802.11 security protocol designed to ensure that only authorized parties can view transmitted wireless information
WLAN a wireless network designed to replace or supplement a wired local area network
wireless reply a passive attack on which the attacker captures transmitted wireless data, records it, and then sends it on to the origional recipient without the attacker's presence being detected.
