This ITL Bulletin summarizes NIST Special Publication (SP) 800-48, Wireless Network Security, 802.11, Bluetooth, and Handheld Devices. Written by Tom Karygiannis and Les Owens. NIST SP 800-48 provides recommendations to improve the security of wireless networks. It discusses three aspects of wireless security: security issues associated with wireless local area networks (WLANs) that are based on Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) standards 802.11; security issues related to wireless personal area networks based on the Bluetooth specifications, which were developed by an industry consortium; and security of wireless handheld devices.
