Devon Technical College is a private Registered Training Organisation (RTO) with a campus based in Western Melbourne. It offers over 40 certificate and diploma level qualifications in the Vocational Education and Training (VET) sector for a large number of subject areas including business, community services, education, information technology, health, hospitality, and many others.
Students select from one of two study shifts (morning or afternoons) to undertake study which is self-directed in nature or trainer led, and to undertake assessments. With the self-directed courses, trainers/assessors are on hand to handle student’s queries, while other courses are trainer led.
There are currently 450 students that attend the institute across a wide range of classrooms.
The RTO has basic Wi-Fi for the students, staff and visitors. Stakeholders use different devices like phones, tablets and laptops. The current Wi-Fi has the following issues:
|Organisational and regulatory policies|
|The wireless network for the RTO must meet the following needs:|
1. Complete network coverage with wired and wireless network, providing constant stable network access for students, staff and visitors.
2. Network isolation between students, staff and visitors, ensuring network safety.
3. Access authentication, access permission management, and advertising promotion.
4. Simple network maintenance and management, low cost for devices maintenance.
5. All the data must be store in a safe location and make sure data is backed up every three hours
6. All the students information including Id’s must be safe and secure
Also, the Work Health and Safety Policies for installation of Wireless Network for the RTO states the following:
Ensuring safety in the network installation sector
The wireless network setup including the Access Points-AP are all handled and managed by the IT department of the RTO. The IT department is responsible for not only providing the Wireless Access to the customers and the staff members but also responsible for the management of the whole IT and the Network infrastructure of the RTO.
The IT network itself is comprised of the Servers, Computers, Printers, Scanners, Online CCTV camera setup along with the wireless access point. This IT infrastructure is all connected with an efficient and sophisticated Local Area Network. As highlighted earlier while establishing the Access Point the IT department has already segmented into multiple access control parameters ensuring the segregation of customers, staff of different shops and the IT staff of the account.
IT department needs to design and implement a wireless network security solution of the RTO. The IT department is headed by the ICT Manager Steve who is responsible for the management and the administration of the whole IT setup of the RTO while Smith the Network Security Engineer works in coordination with the ICT Manager to manage and setup the network infrastructure of the RTO. The job responsibilities of both the key IT personal along with the Network Diagram of the RTO to illustrate the network infrastructure and Wireless access points are given below:

Task 1: Wireless Network Security Plan
The IT department is keen to design and implement wireless network security for Devon Technical College to ensure efficient and more secured usage of network resources for the students, staff members and visitors. For the design and the implementation of the wireless network security the IT department needs to draft and document a wireless network security plan. This security plan will help to understand both the requirements of the security parameters and the implementation mechanism to be followed for the wireless network security.
The student will act as the Network Security Engineer and will prepare the wireless network security plan as per the requirements specified by the ICT Manager and the management of Devon Technical College. The Network Security Engineer will prepare the security plan under the assistance of the ICT Manager and as per the network infrastructure of the RTO. Also, the Network Security Manager needs to ensure that the plan is according to continuous growth of the IT setup and as per the security needs and that can also be used for the future correspondence.
The Wireless Network Security Plan must include the following and also the student needs to complete the template for the security plan given below:

Issues with the current wireless system
Hardware and software
Wi-Fi protection (Security)
Security threats and risks
Firewall requirements of wireless security
Task 2: Analysis of Guest Access Services
For the design and implementation of the guest access services, you need to discuss with the ICT Manager about different architectures of guest access services and need to elaborate each and select one in consultation with the ICT Manager as per your requirements.
The trainer/assessor will act as the ICT Manager and will discuss and sort out all the queries relating the guest access service. The guest access service will help to define the mechanisms of granting access to the different users including the permanent and the guest users. Also, complete the minutes of meetings given below for the analysis of the guest access services.
You need to complete this task in 10-15 minutes and your trainer may provide you additional time if required.
You are required to complete the following meeting minute’s template and submit to your trainer/assessor.

Activity 2: Design, implement and test a wireless local area network (WLAN) site security plan
Task 1: Design a wireless local area network (WLAN) site security plan
In this task you need to produce a map for wireless network for the RTO. In the map you need to include:
You are required to prepare a map in a packet tracer software and provide IP address to the relevant devices.
You need to submit you network map to your trainer and assessor. You need to complete this task in 1-2 hours. Trainer may provide you additional time if required.
Task 2: Implement and test a wireless local area network (WLAN) site security plan
Note: This activity is continuing of a previous activity.
Reference to the wireless network security plan developed in the previous activity, you are being the Network Security Engineer needs to implement the WLAN security plan. You need to implement the plan in coordination with the ICT Manager which will be acted by the trainer/assessor. For the implementation of the network security, you need to perform the tasks in the environment of a Live Network environment provided by the trainer/assessor.
The trainer/assessor will act as a supervisor and will guide you through the initial process of implementation the network security plan on the network infrastructure.
You need to complete this task in 6-8 hours. Your trainer may provide you additional time if required.
