Wireless Local Area Networks (Wireless LANs, or WLANs) are changing the landscape of computer networking. Wireless communications are inherently more open to attack than wired data transfer, as its physical layer is not contained in the wire. Extensible Authentication Protocol - Transport Layer Security is completely password cracking resistant because it does not rely on user passwords. Extensible Authentication Protocol - Transport Layer Security provides mutual authentication between the supplicant and authentication server based on X.509 certificates. It eliminates MITM attacks and rogue access point's can be detected.
