Definition Edit

Tethering is "using one mobile device to provide network access for another mobile device."[1]

Overview Edit

"Tethering allows an end-user to share the internet connection of a phone or tablet with other devices such as laptops."[2]

Security Edit

"Organizations should have policies regarding the use of tethering. If an organization permits tethering, then it should ensure that the network connections involving tethering are strongly protected (e.g., communications encryption). If an organization prohibits tethering, then it should configure mobile devices so that they cannot be used for tethering."[3]
