Executive Summary

Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is one of the encryption data method used in wireless network to provide the same level of security provided by the wired network. The WEP standard applied in wireless network, especially in the 802.11b standard, was acknowledged to have some weaknesses. But many wireless network users, especially home user, do not realize these weaknesses. This is because lack of wireless network knowledge of the user and high cost to perform security test on the network by hiring professional consultant.
