Fighting for wireless respect

Wi-Fi News: Infra Dig

I have few doubts the Wi-Fi News site is correct in critizing inacurate statements on wireless security. What I find most interesting is the amount of time and energy the wireless LAN industry is spending on security, now that a reputation for poor security has been established.

Note to developers of other technologies:
Just like oil companies and the safety of oil tankers, once you blow it, it takes a long time to regain customer confidence.

I believe the wireless industry will overcome these challenges, but I'm not convinced the market will be as accomidating for the next big technology that does not equate security with product quality.
