The CEO of your company has recently contemplated introducing a wireless element to the network, as well as a virtual private network (VPN) server for the salespeople and individuals telecommuting from remote locations. Although this seems like a good idea, the CEO is requesting more information because he is worried that this may create a security issue and network congestion and response time.

  • Prepare a 2-page e-mail reply to the CEO explaining what you would do to secure the new VPN and wireless access to external users to include a recommendation for a strong level of wireless encryption.
  • Research packet capture tools and explain how they can be used for network management and resource balancing as well as their use to analyze a virus in the process of propagating across your network in real-time
