CompTIA Security+ Question B-71

Matt, an administrator, is concerned about the wireless network being discovered by war driving.
Which of the following can be done to mitigate this?

A. Enforce a policy for all users to authentic through a biometric device.
B. Disable all SSID broadcasting.
C. Ensure all access points are running the latest firmware.
D. Move all access points into public access areas.

Answer: B

B: War driving is the act of using a detection tool to look for wireless networking signals. The setting making a wireless network closed (or at least hidden) is the disabling of service set identifier (SSID) broadcasting. Thus by disabling all SSID broadcasting you can mitigate the risk of war driving.
