IT Security Tools & Downloads
Wireless Triangulator Site Survey Tool
Wireless Triangulator Site Survey Tool
Other wireless site survey tools require significant existing infrastructure, or extensive investment of time for walk-abouts with a scaled floor-plan. Information Systems Auditors and Information Security personnel often don't have access to all required physically-controlled space. In addition, installed Wireless Access Points (WAPs) with site survey capabilities typically do not cover all of the space -- if they are installed at all. My Wireless Triangulator Site Survey Tool provides a better option to locate rogue wireless access points.

NIST Special Publication 800-63 Password Policy Compiance Checker
Password Policy Compliance Tool (NIST SP 800-63)
While evaluating systems for password compliance, I made this NIST Special Publication 800-63 password policy compliance checker spreadsheet to help me determine if password policies comply with the Electronic Authentication Guideline. Feel free to use it to test your own systems. If you like it, please donate to my grad school fund.
