NIST & Wireless ...

NASA has had this out for over a year.


Yep, its like the early 1980's all over again when the wardialing first
came up. All sorts of security features were built into modems, such as
callback, modem passwords, encryption, etc. Some people enabled every
security feature modem vendors created. As long as you used the same
modem brand on both ends, you might even get them all to work. Eventually
people decided the modem level was generally the wrong place to do access
control. System, NAS/RAS, etc were used to enforce access controls. Of
course, there were some basic things you should configure correctly, or
you might experience some problems.


I'm not sure we've come to an agreement on the best way to handle wireless
