WAP Security Issue

WAP Security Issue

Question:
When encrypted information is being interchanged between a client and a “secure” server through WAP, does the information ever lie decrypted on the WAP gateway or does the client handle the decryption?

Answer:
Yes, it does lie unencrypted on the gateway. It’s the infamous security flaw with WAP, and why a lot of major retailers aren’t quickly adopting wireless shops.
