    Most IT professionals have been asked, one time or another, to trace down a
    possible "rogue" user wireless AP. It never is much fun. What would be nice
    is a system that would help to do this....


    "This new Linux-based wireless intrusion detection system is aimed at
    stopping a network's security from being compromised by detecting the
    installation of unauthorized access points. The wireless detection system
    utilizes wireless drones to develop a wireless network solely to detect any
    wireless signals that emanate from within their workplace. By incorporating
    a GPS module the location of any intruding device can be pinpointed. A
    standard web interface allows the administrator to monitor network usage;
    the system uses e-mail and pop-up alerts to signal possible intrusions of
    the network."

    Um. Sounds like a honeypot. Presumably running on the same bandwidth as the
    production network (should work, but surely would interfere with Production
    systems?)

    The GPS thing sounds like complete BS, though - how can a radio receiver
    calculate position of something that is physically in a different
    location?!?

    Interesting idea, though..
