How Secure are LEAP/EAP enabled WLAN's ?

I would like to ask you the experts the same question that I get asked many times by my customers with regards to how secure is a 802.1X enabled wireless networks.

I constantly get presented with reports by security experts deeming Wireless as not secure.

Do you have any direct answers to this and material to substantiate your answers.

This page is an index to all of the WLAN security white papers plus various magazine and universtiy articals and the responses from Cisco

http://www.cisco.com/warp/public/779/smbiz/wireless/wlan_security.shtml/

There is more than a few nights vaulable reading that should help you answer your customers questions.

Like any technolgy if you do not understand how to administer it then it will be insecure but there are many tools to make it secure.

In my opinion network security should not be one layer of security but many layers all adding up to make it very hard and time consuming for hackers. They will look for an easier target.
