You had me at "Rogue"

I'm at a pretty major Internet Security conference right now. As you can imagine, it's a Connected World, and everyone is wireless.

Including the WiFi access point that calls itself "Rogue_AP"*. Heh.

Well played, sir. Well played.

* To non-security geeks, a "Rogue Access Point" is a non-authorized WiFi device that is installed on the network by people acting against corporate security policy. For example, the Marketing team wants to be able to have their weekly staff meeting across the street in the park, but wants to bring their laptops with them. Of course, security isn't an after thought, it's not thought of at all.

I *love* it. *chuckles*

There needs to be another one called "Rouge_AP" though.. just to poke fun at those who can't spell for beans.
