Does war driving enhance the security of wireless networks?
Interesting question! Let me rephrase it and say that doing a site survey does.
is really just the practice of looking for insecure wireless local area networks (WLANs), while site surveys include planning of the placement of access points (APs) but also identifying areas where there is signal leakage. How far away from your facility can you still pick up a wireless signal? Depending on the level of security required, you may need to install shielding to block or reduce the range of your WLAN zone. Finally, you will want to check and see if there are other WLANs detectible in your area. Are these secured and is there any chance your users may connect to these by mistake?
