A couple notes of interest that might be applicable to libraries looking to secure WLAN access:
Sys Admin Magazine - July 2003 â€¢ Volume 12 â€¢ Number 7
Securing Wireless Campus Networks
Also, the current issue of Linux Journal has several articles about WLAN security and how you can offer controlled access with several OSS pieces. In their own words:
"Meanwhile, the author of Kismet, Mike Kershaw, explains how to set up your very own access point, with NoCatAuth and a friendly login screen for security, on page 52. If you merely leave your access point open, people might hesitate to use it because they're polite or don't know what your intentions are. Change its name to something with â€œpublicâ€? or â€œopenâ€? in it, and put up NoCatAuth so that people can sign in and understand the terms under which they're allowed to use it."
