  28. 28. Chapter 12 You Learned <ul><li>Wired networks typically rely on physical security to protect the privacy of their communications. However, if a wireless network is not properly secured, an intruder in a car parked outside can use a laptop to gain full access to the network’s communications. </li></ul>
  29. 29. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><li>The 802.11 standards published by the Institute of Electrical and Electronic Engineers (IEEE) dictate the frequencies, transmission speeds, and ranges of wireless networking products. </li></ul><ul><li>WEP is a wireless security protocol that helps protect transmitted information by using a security setting, called a shared secret or a shared key, to encrypt network traffic before sending it. </li></ul>
  30. 30. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>Although shared secret authentication is stronger than an open system for authentication, it weakens the WEP encryption. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>WPA encrypts data using the RC4 algorithm with a 128-bit key. This is the same algorithm as WEP, but TKIP virtually eliminates WEP’s most exploited vulnerability by using a unique encryption key for each packet. </li></ul></ul>
  31. 31. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>Implemented in the WPA2 standard, AES uses a different and more secure encryption algorithm called CCMP. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Laptop computers have a Mobile PC control panel, which consolidates many of Vista’s most frequently used configuration settings in one place. </li></ul></ul>
  32. 32. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>Windows Mobility Center is a shell application that provides a central point of access for many of the configuration settings that mobile computer users need frequently. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Most laptop computers have the capability to connect an external display device, making it possible for a group of users to view the desktop without having to crowd around a single screen. </li></ul></ul>
  33. 33. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>To conserve battery power as much as possible, virtually all laptops include the hardware and firmware elements needed to dynamically adjust the power consumption of individual components. </li></ul></ul>
  34. 34. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>Windows Vista includes a dialog box that bundles together the configuration settings that users most often adjust before giving a presentation and make it possible to activate all of the settings with a single switch. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Windows Vista includes the ability to store copies of network files on the local drive for use when the computer is disconnected. </li></ul></ul>
  35. 35. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>Sync Center is an application that functions as a central control panel for all of a Windows Vista computer’s synchronization partnerships, including those with network drives and mobile devices. </li></ul></ul>
  36. 36. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>Windows SideShow is a new feature in Windows Vista designed to accommodate a new secondary display technology that is currently being integrated into a wide variety of products. </li></ul></ul>
  37. 37. Chapter 12 You Learned (cont.) <ul><ul><li>A tablet PC’s entire display is touch sensitive, enabling users to tap screen buttons with a finger or tap, click, drag, and write directly on the screen using a stylus. Windows Vista also includes handwriting recognition capabilities that convert the handwriting into digital text. </li></ul></ul>
