Faculty/Staff Wireless Network at KSC
Wireless network access at KSC has just become more secure!
What is a secure wireless network?
The goal of a secure wireless network is to protect the data being transmitted across it by encrypting the information. Unencrypted wireless networks are inherently insecure because they transmit your information into the open air where anyone can attempt to receive it. Encryption protects the information when it is crossing the wireless portion of the KSC network. As some of the information being transmitted by Faculty and Staff is confidential, encryption is necessary. It protects students, faculty and staff information from exposure. This will not protect you if you give out personal or confidential information to bad web sites or through email.
