chromoZ writes "In the event of the serial blasts in Indian cities and the terrorist outfits claiming responsibility via email — often sent via Cyber Cafes and open wifi spots. The Telecom Regulatory Authority of India (TRAI) after studying open Wifi networks is coming up with a set of guidelines and recommendations to secure them. "All ISPs may be instructed to ensure that their subscribers using wireless devices must use effective authentication mechanisms and permit access to internet to only authorised persons using wireless devices." An open Wifi could be as much as illegal in India after this."
