Wireless Vulnerabilities and Exploits (WVE) Database

The Wireless Vulnerabilities and Exploit (WVE) database is a wonderful wireless security resource. The WVE is basically a clearing house for wireless vulnerabilities and exploits. It is similar to the Common Vulnerabilities and Exposure (CVE) database however the WVE focuses on wireless technology. Also the CVE database only tracks vulnerabilities where the WVE database tracks vulnerabilities and the exploits that can be used to attack those vulnerabilities.

When assessing the security of a wireless device this is one of the research tools I use to determine if there are any known weaknesses in that device.

If you have any interest in wireless security I highly recommend you explore the site and monitor it for updates. They even offer an RSS feed of the recent entries.

Been Speaking, Looking for Feedback

I've been doing a lot of public speaking recently. The past two Wednesdays I gave workshops on how to use NetStumbler and Kismet to find wireless networks, and last Friday I gave a talk covering the risks related to m-commerce. If any of my readers attended these talks and have comments on ways to improve them please let me know by posting suggestions in the comments section, you can even post them anonymously if you like. I am always interested in improving my presentations so any feedback is greatly appreciated!
