Book Review: Security for Wireless Ad Hoc Networks

Authors: Anjum & Mouchtaris
Publisher: Wiley
Cost: $75.00
Rating: 3 out of 5

This book reads like a PHD thesis. It is long on technical and mathematic detail and a little short on real-world scenarios. The examples are well researched and deeply technical. While the reading is a little tedious, those seeking an in depth understanding of wireless security will benefit greatly from this book.

At just under 250 pages it’s likely to take longer than a weekend to complete the read, but especially if you’re a mathematical genius, this book should be right up your alley. One of the highlights of the book is the content that relates to intrusion detection systems. The section did an excellent job of explaining various techniques and architectures for wireless intrusion detection. This content will be especially interesting to engineers and vendors in the wireless security space.
