Interview with Martin Croome, European General Manager of Socket Communications
by Mirko Zorz - Thursday, 13 February 2003.
It depends where the Wireless LAN is. If it's on a campus then a very strong and localizable signal would be required. While you couldn't feasibly stop it, it would be reasonably easy to localize the signal and stop it. The same issue faces other wireless networks such as GSM and is not a major issue as far as we are aware.

What is your vision for the future of wireless security?

We believe that 802.1X will improve wireless security by enabling much more secure authentication. However we also believe that a wireless connection will never be as secure as a cabled one by it's very nature so we expect corporates with extremely sensitive information to treat it with caution. The risk / reward equation will be one for each company to assess.
