Wireless Local Area Network Security : An Investigation Into Security Tool Usage In Wireless Networks, Susan Webb Jan 2003

Wireless Local Area Network Security : An Investigation Into Security Tool Usage In Wireless Networks, Susan Webb

Theses : Honours

Many organisations and individuals installing wireless local area networks (WLANs), which are based on the IEEE 802.11 b standard, have little understanding of the security issues that surround this technology.

This study was initiated to determine how WLAN security issues affect organisations in Perth, Western Australia. The scope of the study was restricted to 802.llb WLANs operating in infrastructure mode, where all traffic is transmitted by wireless access points (APs). This study was conducted in two phases. The general aims of the first phase were to determine the number of detectable WLANs in the Perth Central Business District ...


Bluetooth Software On Linux, Wireless Hand-Held Devices, Teck Khoon Low Jan 2001

Bluetooth Software On Linux, Wireless Hand-Held Devices, Teck Khoon Low

Theses : Honours

In order to enable existing computers (non-Bluetooth ready) to connect to a Bluetooth piconet, a Bluetooth hardware device comprising of the Radio antenna, the baseband and control circuit is used. The digital portion of this device is also known as a Host Controller, HC. In the traditional communication lingo, the Bluetooth Hardware functions, as the Data Communication Equipment (DCE) while the Host is the Data terminal Equipment (DTE). This report discusses the theory and implementation of the communication protocol between the Host and the Host Controller, enabling communication between the computer and the Bluetooth hardware


Simulator For The Performance Analysis Of Cpm Schemes In An Indoor Wireless Environment, Ronald Chua Jan 1996

Simulator For The Performance Analysis Of Cpm Schemes In An Indoor Wireless Environment, Ronald Chua

Theses : Honours

A software simulator for characterising Continuous Phase Modulation (CPM) schemes in an indoor multipath environment has been developed using SIMULINK and MATLAB. The simulator is capable of simulating a wide range of CPM schemes to determine bandwidth efficiency and robustness to additive white Gaussian noise (AWGN) and Rician fading. Initial trials of the simulator indicate that the simulator is functioning correctly. Eventually, the simulator will be used to determine the most suitable modulation scheme for the development of an actual indoor wireless system.


Analysis Of Background Noise For Wireless Microwave Lan Channels, Jason C. Hislop Jan 1996

Analysis Of Background Noise For Wireless Microwave Lan Channels, Jason C. Hislop

Theses : Honours

Perusal of the details within, should provide the reader with an insight into general wireless indoor communications within the microwave spectrum, with respect to the problems laced, specific to noise corruption of the transmitted signal. Indoor communication systems are difficult to model, due to the largely random nature of the relevant environment, and the compounding factors that degrade system performance. These factors are many and varied, in accordance with the operational topologies of possible application area. However, there exists a common and increasing need to effectively model the communication links in question. Part of this strategy involves having an understanding ...
