Overview

One of the few places that pervasive Wi-Fi is not found these days is in US Federal Government office buildings and military bases. Government IT departments explain this lack of modern technology by pointing to Information Assurance (IA) departments who block their planned deployments because of security concerns. IA departments, on the other hand, point to unclear rules, regulations, and policies around Wi-Fi use which prevent them from making informed risk decisions.

Wi-Fi is secure enough for government use, and is approved by policy. This paper will provide a detailed, technical explanation of how modern enterprise Wi-Fi networks are secured. It will cover generic industry capabilities as well as Aruba-specific innovations that decrease risk for customers. The paper will also highlight different government policies governing Wi-Fi use.
