Rogue AP Containment

Unanswered Question

I tested the capability of containing rogue AP over the air in a lab environment. It works great, but I have the following questions/concerns:

1. How could I detect if others/hackers do this to our wireless network?

2. Will the WLCs be able to detect this kind of stuff?

3. Any links or documents on this topic would be greatly appreciated.

Be very careful when you are using AP Containment.  In some countries, if you contain the wrong AP/WLAN, you and/or your organization can be liable.

The WLC/WCS can conduct AP Containment very well.  I know because I've used this on Rogues AP found WITHIN the premises.
