Network managers who need to integrate Direct Sequence Spread Spectrum (Dsss) 802.11b wireless LANs successfully into their networks need to understand both the currently available wireless security mechanisms as well as their inherent limitations.

In this Issue, Tolly Research engineers evaluated common wireless networks (Wlan) security features in order to determine operational limitations and overall effectiveness. As is often the case, enhanced security measures must also be evaluated in terms of usability and potential end-user impact, especially given the previous history of wireless performance (i.e. bandwidth limitations). With this in mind, researchers quantified Wlan performance across a variety of traffic types and security strategies to generate a general security impact profile.

At the conclusion of this Issue, IT Managers and network engineers will gain functional insight into currently available Wlan security measures and their associated performance characteristics. Particular focus was placed on Lucent/ORiNoco products, as these constitute a significant proportion of the currently deployed Wlan infrastructures.
