Wires Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is used to improve the security of wireless LAN (WLAN). By analyzing the weaknesses of WEP and RC4, the author designs a simulative platform including software and hardware to crack WEP keys. The results show that the WLAN based on WEP is insecure. At last they give some improvements to enhance the WLAN security.
