IEEE 802.11 tutorials

  • It is the original IEEE 802.11 standard for Shared key authentication and WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).

WEP is one of the least secure forms of security.

  • A network that is secured with WEP had been cracked in 3 minutes by FBI.

  • To establish WEP encryption you have to install same secret key in each of organization Wireless Access Point.

  • Then you must install that key in each Client.

  • WEP uses either 40 bits or 104 bits Encryption key.

  • Finally Wireless Access Point and Client go through a challenge response cycle which uses WEP encryption key as shared secret key.

  • Although WEP fails to meet security goals, it is still widely used.


IEEE 802.1X

  • IEEE 802.1X provide same standard that existed for Ethernet Switch.

  • It was adapted to Wireless LAN to provide much stronger authentication then original 802.11 WEP standard.

  • 802.1X authentication is designed for medium and large wireless LAN that consist of RADIUS (Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service) Server and AD DS (Active Directory Domain Service) Database.

  • IEEE 802.1X prevents a wireless node from joining a wireless network until the node performs a successful authentication.

  • When Wireless Access Point & Data-Link device, detects new clients, it passes authentication to authentication server. Server then checks the client’s credentials and report the authentication status to data-link or WAP device.

  • If authentication fails, Wireless Access Point, bridge or Switch will not forward packets to the network.

  • You must ensure that the Client and Wireless Devices all support 802.1X protocol.


WPA - Wi-Fi Protected Access

  • WPA is quick alternative to improve security over WEP.

  • WPA - Wi-Fi Protected Access was created by Wi-Fi Alliance an organization of Wireless Equipment vendors.

  • WPA is a trimmed down version of 802.11i Security standard developed by IEEE 802.11 to replace WEP.

  • WEP uses a much stronger encryption method known as TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol).


WPA2 - Wi-Fi Protected Access 2

  • WPA2 is a Wi-Fi Alliance branded version of 802.11i standard.

  • WPA2 support the additional mandatory security features of IEEE 802.11i standards that were not included in earlier WPA version.

  • WPA2 support both TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol) and AES encryption.

  • Both EPA and WPA2 support EAP authentication using RADIUS server and PSK Preshared Key.
