1. Distinguish between evil twin access points and rogue access points. (The answer is not explicitly in the text.) a. Evil twin access points has software to impersonate a real access point. It operates at a very high power, so if a wireless host is configured to choose the highest-power access point, it will choose the evil twin as opposed to the legitimate access point. b. A rogue access point is an unauthorized access point set up within a firm which typically has poor or no security. A single unsecure rogue access point will give a drive-by hacker access to a firm’s internal network. c. An evil twin is a rogue wireless access point that disguises itself as a legitimate Wi-Fi access point so that an attacker can gather personal or corporate information without the end-user's knowledge

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
