Trust No Wire

We hope we've left you with sensible suggestions for protecting your network, your data, and your computers. If you're a home user without close neighbors, you should probably stop at protecting your passwords. As your risk factors go up—you live or work in a densely populated area, your data is sensitive, you run Internet servers—you should take more precautions for securing your data and your network.

Make sure to encrypt your email passwords, use SSH or SSL if possible, and while you're at it, check out the next chapter, which offers lots of additional advice for using wireless networking on the road.
