(read: unemployed) So aside from learning a new language and being a full time grad student, I have plenty of time to devote to learning network security. I'm signing up for a computer course through my grad school, just to get a wheel rolling. I've been really interested in this stuff for a long time and have been going to grad school to complete a degree I lost interest in years ago
I'm looking into tacking on some computer certs to my resume. I worked in tier 1 IT help desk for about a year and actually enjoyed fixing people's problems (probably the only guy there that enjoyed it, haha)

Yes, it's encrypted.
So I see my assumption about the ISP was right. Do you have access to your Wimax admin panel? This connection can be monitored - and may be vulnerable to MITM attacks, although most reliable ISP's serving wimax have pretty strict standards in place to ensure data integrity and security.
Dug up this article - its a few years old but explains in good english some concerns: http://www.networkworld.com/columnists/ ... urity.html
Yes, I have admin rights to my WiMax panel....as soon as I can remember what I set the login/password to. Grrr.
I would imagine this country's "strict standards" aren't that strict, if you know what I mean. Haha.
Thanks for the article, I'll give it a read.
