This afternoons sessions including work on 802.11 location services and Network Security.
The first session of the afternoon presented an interesting use of 802.11 as a multi-service network providing data, voice and location managment. Several vendors are coming to market with RFID tags that are based on 802.11 that can be tracked by an enterprise Wireless network. This cuts down on interference of having multiple networks.
The Network security session was discussing the secure way to manage your network infrastructure. Key points included ‘if you were under attack – would you know it?’ and how to preserve management data for forensic follow up.
