Wirless Security Protocols (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) …
Wirless Security Protocols
Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)
Many applications beyond WPA/WPA2 use AES to provide secure encryption and ensure confidentiality.
Used instead of TKIP
it is a very strong and efficient encryption algorithm.
RADIUS provides centralized authentication
When implemented with WPA or WPA2, 802.1x provides an added layer of protection by ensuring users can authenticate before granting them access to the wireless network.
IEEE 802.1x as a Remote Authentication Dial-In User Service (RADIUS) server
An 802.1x server is integrated with a database of accounts and it provides port-based authentication by requiring users and devices to authenticate before granting them access to a network.
Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP)
Several people have been successful at cracking WPA with TKIP, so whenever possible, it’s best to upgrade WPA to WPA2, or at least upgrade TKIP to use AES.
Doesn't required hardware upgrade
Even though TKIP corrects several of WEP’s flaws, it was ultimately cracked.
IEEE has deprecated TKIP
An older encryption protocol used with WPA
Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol (CCMP)
Based on Advanced Encryption Standard AES
recommends using WPA2 with CCMP because it provides significantly more security.
newer encryption protocol used with WPA2.
Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2)
including the use of the Counter Mode with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol (CCMP)
The Wi-Fi Alliance requires all devices carrying its WI-FI CERTIFIED logo to meet WPA2 standards, .
Uses stronger cryptography than both WEP and WPA.
Permanent replacement for WEP and WPA
WPA2 (also known as IEEE 802.11i)
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
immediate solution to the weaknesses of WEP without requiring users to upgrade their hardware.
A replacement to WEP until developer done with WPA2
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
the IEEE deprecated the use of WEP in 2004
Unfortunately, it has significant vulnerabilities
Its aim to provide same security as wire netwoek
The original security protocol used to secure wireless networks
