The nature of wireless is that of a physically open medium which makes authentication, access control, and confidentiality necessary in the implementation of a wireless LAN. There are three primary categories of networks: wireless local area network (WLAN), wireless metropolitan-area network (WMAN), and wireless personal area network (WPAN). The security for each of these types of wireless networks is discussed in this chapter.
