Review by David J. Biano

pg.88

"highly detailed ...Wireless Security is a valuable reference for telecommunications professionals. It is hard to find information about the security of all these topics in one place, which makes this book a valuable addition to any security architect's book-shelf." (Information Security Magazine 2002-04-01)

J.M. (Mike) McConnell, Vice Admiral, USN (Ret), Vice President, Booz, Allen & Hamilton, Inc. and former Director of the National Security Agency (NSA), 1992-1996, sets the stage for this timely book with a perceptive Foreword that states the problem in his first sentence: "The safeguarding of information traveling over wireless technology has quickly become one of the most important and contentious challenges facing today's technology innovators." With their book, Nichols and Lekkas pick up the gauntlet and provide a comprehensive guide for managers and policy makers involved with wireless communications. They explain the vulnerabilities, response options, and real-world costs associated with wireless platforms and applications, plus information needed to help develop the background and skills required to: Recognize new and established threats to wireless systems; Close gaps that threaten privacy, profits, and customer loyalty; Replace temporary, fragmented, and partial solutions with more robust and durable answers; Weigh platforms against characteristic attacks and protections; Apply clear guidelines for the best solutions now and going forward; Prepare for the boom in m-business; Assess today's protocol options and compensate for documented shortcomings. This book is also an encyclopedic guide to the state of the art with: Encryption algorithms you can use now, End-to-end hardware solutions and field programmable gate arrays, An extensive guide to speech cryptology, Authentication strategies and security protocols for wireless systems, Infosec and infowar experience, Adding satellites to your security mix and much more. The book is another blockbuster... (The Cryptogram, Journal of the American Cryptogram Association 2002-03-01)
