    I'm a bit torn up about this one, as as i dont have time for any "revision" i'll go with A, as no one solution is usually 100% secure, but D is also niggling at me, as users and their authentication do tend to be very weak areas....

    I'm used to being wrong so i'll just wait and see!!

    Yup

    I'm going with C as well. Had to read that one a number of times before it made sence. Still, perhaps it didn't and I'm wrong. :oops:

    Time's up. Correct answer is C. WLAN doesn't do user authentication...just client authentication is required by the 802.11 standard. More tomorrow. Good activity, folks.
