Abstract
(EN)
According to an embodiment of the present invention, security exposure analysis of wireless network within a selected local geographic area is provided. A computer model (320) of the selected local geographic region comprising a layout (324) is generated. Information regarding wireless network components is provided to the computer model. Using the computer model, signal intensity characteristics of at least one of the wireless network components are determined over at least a portion of the selected geographic region. Based at least on the signal intensity characteristics, security exposure information associated with the wireless network is determined. The security exposure information is graphically displayed on the computer screen in relation to the layout of the selected geographic region. The security exposure information includes sniffer detection and prevention coverage, access point vulnerability regions, and signal uncertainty and variability views.

L'invention porte dans une exécution sur une analyse de l'exposition à l'insécurité de réseaux sans fil dans une aire géographique locale sélectionnée dont on crée un modèle informatique comprenant un plan d'implantation. Les informations relatives aux composants du réseau sans fil sont fournies au modèle et à l'aide du modèle on détermine les caractéristiques d'intensité des signaux d'au moins l'un des composants du réseau sans fil sur au moins une portion de l'aire géographique sélectionnée. Puis sur la base au moins desdites caractéristiques, une information sur l'exposition à l'insécurité du réseaux sans fil est présentée graphiquement sur l'écran de l'ordinateur en relation avec le susdit plan d'implantation. Ladite information comporte la détection des renifleurs, la couverture de la prévention, les zones d'accès vulnérables, les incertitudes sur certains signaux, et des aperçus sur la variabilité des situations.
