Mobile computing is evolving at a rapid pace with 802.11 networks; the fuzzy boundaries make it easy for intruders to intercept the radio signals. War driving was performed along highways; the resulting packet analysis is explained to show how easy some security attacks can be. An elaboration is done on a host of wireless security attacks that leads to the discussion of secure wireless network design, along with some network security simulation. The paper concludes with a list of security recommendations.
