Don't you think would be better to name Neighbor AP instead of Rogue AP in Zonedirector alarms? If SSID is cloned, then should be a Honeypot AP

Consider "Neighbor" APs are your APs that another of your APs can "hear", whereas Rogue APs are not your APs but are audiable to your APs. To me the naming is OK and changing it now after all this time would be at least somewhat confusing. Also Heneypot to me is a positive meaning, and Malicious is negative, so I can't give this idea a +1.

From Wikipedia "A rogue access point is a wireless access point that has either been installed on a secure company network without explicit authorization from a local network administrator, or has been created to allow a hacker to conduct a man-in-the-middle attack." For me, the word "rogue" has an evil meaning implicit.

I was comparing Honeypot and Malicious, not Rogue.

It seems to me that Wikipedia says it like Ruckus has it implemented.
