Welcome to the Security Section of AskMisterWizard.com

Here you will find information about network security, Virtual Private Networks (VPNs), Encryption, WEP (Wireless Equivalent Protection), WPA (WiFi Protected Access), Firewalls, Email security, Viruses, Adware, Spyware, Phishing, Trojan horses, Malware, and Authentication.

These are more advanced topics than those found in our "Networking Fundamentals" section. If you need help understanding the basics before moving on to these more advanced concepts, you can easily learn everything you need to know from the movies in that section, or from the "Networking Fundamentals" CDROM Movies.

As always here at AskMisterWizard.com, most of the illustrations throughout the Security Section are "live" so that if you click on them, you will be taken to additional detail, video clips, or related information.
