Network and communications security is part of the SSCP Domain 6 objectives and includes the important topic of securing wireless communication. Use this course to learn about the key features of wireless networking technologies and the security vulnerabilities you need to consider. Examine key aspects about the operation of wireless technologies on the network including common wireless 802.11 standards and their distinguishing characteristics, and explore cellular, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Near-Field Communication (NFC). Learn about the role of authentication and encryption protocols like WPA, WPA2, WPA3, and Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) as used on the network. Finally, learn how to secure various Internet of Things (IoT) devices including embedded devices and software-on-a-chip technology. Upon course completion, you'll know what's involved in securing wireless communication and devices. You'll also be further prepared for the (ISC)² Systems Security Certified Practitioner (SSCP) 2021 exam.
