In describing tools for internet security, this title focuses on understanding the system architecture of existing security and on developing architectural changes for new security services. Topics include security threats in wireless networks, security services for countering those threats, and the process of defining functional architecture for network systems. Kempf also discusses examples of wireless Internet security systems such as wireless network access control, local IP subnet configuration and address resolution, and location privacy. Each chapter describes the basic network architecture and protocols for the system under consideration, security threats, functional architecture, and the important internet protocols that implement the architecture. This is an ideal resource for graduate students of electrical engineering and computer science, as well as for engineers and system architects in the wireless network industry.
