Definition Edit

Wireless network Edit

Signal leakage refers to wireless signals broadcasting beyond the perimeter of a building and thereby increasing the networks’ susceptibility to attack.

Overview Edit

"Signal leakage can result in either lost data or the transmission of unusable data. Digital signals are composed of discrete packets of information and carry error-correcting codes that can regenerate any lost data. If these error-correcting codes are lost due to system leaks, the packets may not be transmitted accurately or may be re-assembled incorrectly at the receiving end."[1]
