Spec in works to secure wireless networks

Tuesday, 11 May 2004, 11:40 AM EST

The Trusted Computing Group said Monday that it is working on a specification to ensure that wireless clients connecting to a network won't serve as a back door to worms and crackers.

Officials within the TCG, based in Portland, Ore., said the industry standards body is developing a "Trusted Network Connect" specification, designed to audit wireless-enabled PCs when they first make contact with an enterprise's wireless network.

The specification will be finalized later this year, said officials from the group, which comprises computer and device manufacturers, software vendors and others.
