This book provides a cutting-edge examination of research and/or security solutions in wireless and mobile networks. It begins by covering the security basic concepts and fundamentals constituting a base of knowledge necessary for the comprehension of security issues, challenges and solutions. This discussion will be of invaluable use to those unfamiliar with the security field. Next it presents the security aspects and solutions of on-the-shelf wireless and mobile technologies such as Bluetooth, WiFi, WiMax, 2G and 3G. It also outlines the security mechanisms which protect applications downloaded by mobile terminals through mobile cellular networks. Finally, the book covers security issues and solutions in the emerging wireless and mobile technologies such as ad hoc and sensor networks, cellular 4G and IMS networks.
