The wireless industry is continually growing with more and more gadgets adding wireless functionality. Wireless access points, media centers, phones, security systems, cameras, coffee pots, toys are commonplace in the average household. Unfortunately, the wireless security that is implemented on this equipment is often vulnerable, providing digital access into the home. In practice, many people still use and deploy wireless equipment in their default configurations. This is most often due to poor security awareness or a lack of understanding of the risks and ramifications.
