Discussion

Wireless signals are extremely vulnerable to both detection and interception, which can provide an adversary with the location and intensity of particular DoD activities and potentially reveal classified DoD information. TEMPEST reviews provide assurance that unacceptable risks have been identified and mitigated.

Fix Text

Notify the CTTA of the need to review the SWLAN.

Check Content

Review documentation. Verify the local CTTA has been notified of the site’s intent to install and operate a SWLAN. Mark as a finding if the local CTTA has not been notified.
