Wi-Fi services under cloud post terrorist strikes
TT Correspondent |  New Delhi |  30 Jul 2008

Last week’s blasts in Indian cities and subsequent claim over the blasts by terrorist organizations through email which ultimately turned out to be sent from Wi-Fi network, has brought the whole concept of such services under cloud.


Indian Mujahideen had last week used such a Wi-Fi network to send email ahead of the bomb blasts.


Intelligence agencies have now pointed out that Wi-Fi service providers are offering services without deploying adequate security and access control mechanisms.  Security agencies argue that in wake of lack of adequate mechanisms it becomes difficult to trace the user in case the situation requires tracking the sender.


The move may mar plans of Mumbai and Delhi government authorities on making the cities Wi-Fi enabled.
