    Not a comment but a question. Where can I have a good training on this field?

    Excellent article. I agree with the author’s attitude about certification. I’ve taught courses (cryptography, Internet security, defensive coding practices, etc.) that have enabled my students to pass the CISSP examination. But, I’ve never seriously considered taking it, because it costs too much and the certification isn’t sufficient for professional competence.

    I’ve seen a lot of job postings over the years that emphasize certification. I’m not sure that the potential employers really understand anything about security. One telecommunications company, who’s recruiter (a friend of mine) contacted me, merely wanted to fill a position for the lowest possible salary. The recruiter leveled with me: the executives of the company merely wanted someone to point to when the issue of security came up. “Look guys, we’re doing the best job with the best people”. I see all too much of this.

    I would like to become marketable for employment in the wireless security sector. What type of education/certifications should I persue. I have Cisco CCNA and experience in LAN/WLAN Networking and Mobile Platforms
