WLAN security


Wifislax left a variety of impressions when compared directly with other security distributions.

On one hand, the system impresses with a very comprehensive range of security-related software that covers all the important areas of wireless communications. The WPS authentication software portfolio is extremely useful – and not yet available from other distributions, although WPS technology is spreading quickly. Another positive aspect is the good integration of terminal-based applications through custom scripts.

Less satisfactory, however, is the poor localization: Some scripts and applications exist exclusively in Spanish, and the system is not fully available in English. Additionally, the routine for installing Wifislax on disk has some significant weaknesses. That said, for network administrators who are looking to achieve clean wireless integration, Wifislax can be an extremely useful tool, despite its poor language support.
