Keeping wireless rogues in check

Wednesday, 9 February 2005, 12:26 PM EST

I finally settled on a strategy for wireless security. As wireless access points began appearing on our company's network, we configured them with Cisco's Lightweight Extensible Access Protocol. (See my Nov. 8 column, "Taking the Leap to PEAP for Wireless," QuickLink 50430.) LEAP forces users to authenticate to the access point with their enterprise credentials -- the same credentials used for virtual private network access, as well as services such as payroll and Microsoft Exchange e-mail. That's because we use a centralized directory that ties into most of our core applications and lets employees use a single password to sign on.
