|Title: ||Wireless security|
|Authors: ||Anish Kumar|
|Issue Date: ||9-Feb-2011|
|Abstract: ||Wireless networks differ with the wired network at the data link layer and physical layer. Wireless transmission takes place through the open air. So it is more easy to eavesdrop. For secure transmission of data from the wireless network different types of encryption algorithms are used.
WEP was the first attempt at securing or providing confidentiality over wireless communications. In 2001, weaknesses in WEP were identified, and as a result, today WEP can be cracked within minutes.
WPA was an interim solution to the security flaws discovered in WEP. It implements most of what is found in the 802.11i specifications. It uses TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) as the underlying security protocol which is based on RC4.WPA2 is improvement of WPA.
Wireless network has some advantage and disadvantages. But now a day it is widely used network type.|
