Make sure that endpoints do not use default passwords to connect to wireless access points |
If wireless access points are configured with default or empty passwords, hackers can use wireless sniffers to capture the wireless traffic, extract plain text passwords and other sensitive information that can be used to attack the network.
Action1 automates assessment of wireless connection settings on each endpoint within the CDE to make sure no connections are made using default or empty wireless passwords. This adds the additional layer of protection to catch wireless access points no detected during network equipment assessment.
