Wireless Network Intrusion Detection

WIDS is a patent pending software and hardware product developed by the Air Force Research Lab Information Directorate (AFRL-RI). This cutting edge research organization has a long and successful history of advanced product development for cyber operations, advanced computing architectures, information fusion, and information exploitation.

WIDS detects anomalous wireless activity and vulnerable configuration settings and provides data to the network management system. WIDS detects and reports Rogue Access Points, Unauthorized Clients, Unprotected SSIDs, WEP usage and Ad-Hoc Networks. WIDS provides information on a number of network exploitation methods including Network Discovery and Probing, Man-in-the-Middle attacks, Connection Hijacking, Denial of Service Attacks and MAC Address Spoofing.

  • Does not require sensor calibration making it especially good for areas with changing RF signatures
  • Geo-location capability without system power and frequency configuration
  • Works on all RF communication not just 802.11, 2.4GHz
  • WIDS has been reduced and tested
