    David is a technician for a government office located in a busy, downtown area. He has received a complain from security that someone in a van on the street was using a laptop with a wireless NIC and especially made antenna to access the WLAN signals broadcast by the office. Security has asked David to find a way to make it impossible for WLAN signals to be accessed outside the building. What can David do? Choose only one answer.

    A. David can remove the Access Points near the parameter of the building and require users who work in those areas to change to a wired network connection or, if they must use wireless, to relocate to an area away from the building parameter.
    B. David can use the variable output power controls of the Access Points to reduce the size of the RF cells produced by APs at the parameter of the building so the signals do not extend beyond the building walls.
    C. David can use radio frequency filtering settings on the parameter Access Points and configure them to associate and connect only with computers with the same RF filter configuration thereby making it impossible for an intruder to access the signal.
    D. David can go into the advanced security settings of the Access Points near the building’s parameter and set the alarm feature to automatically shut down the WLAN segment whenever it detects unauthorized monitoring.

    Answer later.

    I'm thinking it's a toss up between A and B.

    I'm gonna guess at B today.
