In April 2003, the Wi-Fi Alliance introduced an interoperable security protocol known as WiFi Protected Access (WPA), based on draft 3 of the IEEE 802.11i amendment. WPA was designed to be a replacement for WEP networks without requiring hardware replacements, using a subset IEEE 802.11i amendment. Organizations who adopt WPA can take advantage of the following features:

* Strong cryptography support from the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP), based on the RC4 cipher;

* WPA-Enterprise, a mechanism for network authentication using IEEE 802.1x and a supported EAP type, one of EAP/TLS, TTLS or PEAP;

* WPA-Personal, a mechanism for using TKIP without IEEE 802.1x authentication by using a shared passphrase, intended for consumer networks.

In July 2004, the IEEE approved the full IEEE 802.11i specification, which was quickly followed by a new interoperability testing certification from the WiFi Alliance known as WPA2. WPA2 is based on the Robust Security Network (RSN) mechanism, which provided support for all of the mechanisms available in WPA, as well as:

* Strong encryption and authentication support for infrastructure and ad-hoc networks (WPA is limited to infrastructure networks);

* Reduced overhead in key derivation during the wireless LAN authentication exchange;

* Support for opportunistic key caching to reduce the overhead in roaming between access points;

* Support for pre-authentication, where a station completes the IEEE 802.1X authentication exchange before roaming;

* Support for the CCMP (Counter Mode with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol) encryption mechanism based on the Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) cipher as an alternative to the TKIP protocol.

As of March 2006, the WPA2 certification became mandatory for all new equipment certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance, ensuring that any reasonably modern…...

The Difference Between Cracking a Wep and a Wpa Network Passkey and How to Protect Yourself from It

...network that would cause the Wi-Fi alliance look into using another algorithm a replacement. WPAv1 is too easy to hack so it is not recommended and WPAv1 is now susceptible to multiple types of attacks. There are several different ways you can help to protect yourself and your information. Verify your spam in your e-mail to make sure a file accidentally was not forwarded to spam. There are also others to improve your security. The length of your passkey is very important in security, as well as keeping an up-to-date anti-virus and staying up-to-date on all the latest hacks, cracks, and technology are critical for your protection. N. Justin Bernard Network Security Term Paper November 13, 2012 The difference between cracking a WEP and a WPA network passkey and how to protect yourself from it In today’s always evolving and improving technology world, there are always loopholes, weaknesses, and gaps. I will discuss one of the primary weaknesses in network security, which is wireless hacking or cracking. I will discuss what a WEP, WPAv1, and WPA2 network is and the advantages and disadvantages of each, I will explain the differences and how to crack each, and I will explain the importance of security and how to improve your security. A wired equivalent privacy, or WEP, is protocol for security for wireless networks. WEP was introduced in 1997 as a part of the original 802.11 standard. WEP was originally designed to be as secure as a wired connection and to protect......

...than $50,000 in this area than the previous year. I would suggest that the budgeted amount be somewhere between the year 7 & 8 amounts, given the positive prediction that sales will increase, which would put it between $1273867 and $1322075. This over statement in this category has also led to the company to under budget their Operating Income which they have budgeted at $80585. With the prediction of selling more units than year 8, the company should be budgeting a higher Operating Income than the previous year’s amount of $97,533. They definitely should not be indicating that they will be selling more but making less. This would be a bad financial sign for the company, as it is showing a lack of leadership and management skills. 2. No budget can be perfect, so keeping this in mind; one would expect variances to be present within the flexible budget. The variances found within this flexible budget, however, seem to highlight the flaws that were noticed and explained above. The first variance that is displayed is the unfavorable variance of $130,065.00 in Net Sales. This is due to the fact that the company sold 3423 units, not the 3510 that was placed in the budget. The variance is considered unfavorable, as the company did not make as much in net sales as it had budgeted for. The positive side for the company is that it did, in fact, turn around the negative sales trend that existed between years 7 & 8. The next variance comes in Direct Materials. ......

Jet 2 Task 2

...Rachel Johnson Addy JET Task 2 March 29, 2014 JET Task 2 1. A budget is an itemized estimate of expected income as well as estimated expenses over a specified period of time. The reason to design a budget is to regulate spending. There are multiple causes of concern with Competition Bikes budget plan. The main cause for concern is that the sales estimated for year 9 is 3,510 units. This estimate is not supported by past sales data. Due to the current economic status, the amount of units sold from year 7 to 8 decreased 15% according to the horizontal analysis. Rider sponsorships were also reduced and will most likely remain limited in the future (WGU, 2014). There is some misleading and inaccurate information posted within the budget. Under the Selling, General, and Administrative breakdown “utilities” is listed at $150,000 on the vertical analysis for year 8 and year 9. Then there is another listing for “utilities and services” of $54,000. This is misleading because this entry was not listed in the expenses from the previous year. Another cause of concern is that the cash budget is not included in the uncollected receivables. CB makes expensive bikes so there should be room for uncollectable accounts. The uncollectable receivables budget could be used to cover the any uncollected payments. The reduction of sponsorships and the slow economy could possibly cause a rise in uncollectable accounts. There is also some concern because the operating income is......

List all the frequency components produced. - 1498, 1500, and 1520KHz 3.If a carrier is amplitude modulated what causes the sideband frequencies? - The non-linear mixing of the carrier and intelligence frequencies. 
 4.What determines the bandwidth of emission for an AM transmission? - It is twice the frequency of the highest audio frequency transmitted. The upper sideband is fc +FM where fc is the carrier frequency and FM is the modulation (audio) frequency .The lower sideband is fc – FM. The total bandwidth is 2*FM 5.Explain the difference between a sideband and a side frequency. - A sideband carries the modulation or "information". in old fashioned AM and FM transmission schemes, a carrier is broadcast in addition to the sideband(s). Only the sideband is needed to communicate. A spurious frequency that happens when a carrier is transmitted has no added "information" and just adds to the transmission bandwidth. Sometimes these occur by intermixing within the transmitter. a common example is CB splatter from overdrive of RF amps.

ASIMO is humanoid robot created to duplicate human motion and genuinely help people. ASIMO took more than two decades of persistent study, research, trial and error before achieving a humanoid robot. ASIMO's design, development and operation rely on many different disciplines including Mathematics, Physics, Anatomy, Engineering and Computer Science. In 1986 Honda engineer’s set out to create a walking humanoid robot early models (E1, E2, and E3) focused on developing legs that could simulate the walk of a human. Models (E4, E5, and E6) focused on developing walk stabilization and climbing stairs. Then the head, arms and body were added to improve balance. Hondas first robot P1 was rather rugged standing at 6’2 and weighing at 386lbs. P2 had a more friendly design. P3 model was more compact standing at 5’2 and weighing 287lbs. ASIMO can run, walk on uneven slopes and surfaces turn smoothly and reach and grab for objects. ASIMO can also comprehend and respond to simple voice commands. It can also recognize the face of a selective group of individuals using camera eyes. It can also map environment and register stationary objects and can avoid moving objects as it moves......
