Weaknesses and Strengths Analysis Over Wireless Network Security Standards

Several wireless networks security standards have been proposed and widely implemented in both business and home environments in order to protect the network from unauthorized access. However, the implementation of such standards is usually achieved by network administrators without even knowing the standards' weaknesses and strengths. The intention of this paper is to evaluate and analyze the impact over the network's security due to the implementation of the wireless networks security standards WEP, WPA and WLAN 802.1X. Wireless local area networks WLANs have been widely implemented and for more than ten years now have proliferated in such an unthinkable way.
