Abstract : This report provides architecture planners with information on the availability, capabilities, and other parameters of commercially available security measures supporting wireless communications, identifies common solutions to the security threat in different wireless communication environments, defines the implications of available wireless security services for NS/EP telecommunications, and provides information useful for developing a strategy to ensure that NS/EP security requiremen for wireless communications are addressed in the standards making process. This report describes the results of an analysis and comparison of security services for nine cross section communication services commonly used by Ns/EP personnel. This study is based upon assumed threats to wireless communications. A reliable and continuing assessment of the threats and vulnerabilities to wireless communications and the recommendation of appropriate and effective implementation of countermeasures are beyond the scope of this study.
