Wireless technology has undoubtedly increased the convenience factor for daily living. On the flip side, it has also introduced new risks and threats. In this chapter on wireless networking, we'll look at the various ways Unix-based systems, including Linux-based hosts, can be used as auditing platforms as well as being audited themselves. In particular, we'll focus on one particular wireless technology called 802.11 (or WiFi as it is more commonly known) from the viewpoint of how you can use Linux to secure as well as audit your organization's wireless network. For more information on full spectrum wireless testing, which includes all RF communication and EMR emanations from business and military operations, see the OSSTMM and the OWSE at http://www.isecom.org.
