A Silicon Valley company said Monday it was making available the first public database of security threats aimed at wireless communications.
According to Network Chemistry, its WVE database will make it easier for the entire wireless industry to develop protections against the growing number of security threats designed to disrupt a variety of wireless communications products.
Officials at CWNP, the organization that certifies local area network system technicians, say the rapid growth of wireless communications in the business sector makes security a pressing need.
The project is sponsored by CWNP and the Center for Advanced Defense Studies in Washington. The WVE (wireless vulnerabilities and exploits) database itself may be accessed at wirelessve.org.
