The should have on security aspects from WLAN

 

The purpose of this
report is to  research the  vulnerabilities that WLAN connections may
have, with the use of several tools we can access to private information from
this wireless access point without effort we are going to discuss different
consideration that people should have on security aspects from WLAN process for
this report is going to show detailed information from the tool that we
selected: Acrylic Wi-Fi tool and how to use it to scan different location and
analyze all the information that this toll can provide knowing that we can give
an inside view of our network and maybe take precautions of what we have to do
to protect our privacy.
