AC-18 WIRELESS ACCESS

Control: The organization:
a. Establishes usage restrictions and implementation guidance for wireless access;
b. Monitors for unauthorized wireless access to the information system;
c. Authorizes wireless access to the information system prior to connection; and
d. Enforces requirements for wireless connections to the information system.
Supplemental Guidance: Wireless technologies include, but are not limited to, microwave, satellite, packet radio (UHF/VHF), 802.11x, and Bluetooth. Wireless networks use authentication protocols (e.g., EAP/TLS, PEAP), which provide credential protection and mutual authentication. In certain situations, wireless signals may radiate beyond the confines and control of organization-controlled facilities. Related controls: AC-3, IA-2, IA-3, IA-8.
