Wireless Detection System is more than just catching break-in attempts. Also includes verifying the network’s access points, identifying any that should not be there and detecting attacks on APs/clients. A well-managed network keeps track of all authorized devices. This allows a network to scan for and identify rogue devices. Network sniffing tools will probe all IP addresses and identify authorized and unauthorized ones. Such sniffing will identify any APs within range and check if they have weak security. Then we come to intrusion detection in the narrower sense. Intrusion attempts include password guessing, WPS breach attempts, and also packet flooding.
