Description

Have you ever found yourself connecting to a Wi-Fi hotspot at a coffee shop and wondering how someone could figure out where you are? This course, Cyber Security Awareness: Security by Geolocation will help you understand how a geological presence with each signal. First, you will get a look at the heavy dependence on wireless technology and what it opens a user up to. Then, you will explore how wardriving can be used for a defensive purpose. You will also see triangulation, trilateration, and multilateration methods of geolocation. Finally, you will see some of the products available to perform geolocation. When you're finished with this course, you will better understand how to locate wireless signal sources using geolocation techniques.

Conclusion
So I usually don't do math in public. I hope that any mistakes aren't overly critical. There are a lot of technicalities I did not go into, and there are many research topics that can spin off of this concept. Wardriving can be exciting. Give it a shot someday. You will be surprised about what can be around you. Geolocation is not that bad. If you can find someone who loves math, it can be even better. You can take simple approaches to it, or go into complicated algorithms, up to you. There are some commercial products already available. They haven't quite hit the home use market, but maybe one day. There will be more problems. What problems do you think will occur? Science and engineering can really help out, but we need to use fact-based decisions to overcome a lot of the frustration. Thank you for viewing this course.
