Topics of this game:
  • Wireless Networks are generally more vulnerable to a variety of threats than Wired networks.
  • Wireless signals are broadcast through the air. Any receiver tuned into the right frequency can pick up the signals.
  • Special scanner hardware is required to see a wireless network's information like its signal strength, name, channel, and encryption type.
  • If you disable the broadcast of your network name (SSID), it's impossible for an attacker to figure it out.
  • Today, the preferred wireless encryption algorithm is Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP).
  • Today, the preferred wireless encryption algorithm is WPA.
  • Today, the preferred wireless encryption algorithm is WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i).
  • Network speeds increase if the network's power level increases.
