With increasing numbers of corporate and organizations deploying wireless network and allowing the company personnel to access the internet or the wired backbone through wireless access points are increasingly getting exposed to hacking attacks. Due to easy hacking tools and less concerns about the security threats of the deployed, various crucial data of the private network is hacked. One of the important forms of a security loophole in the wireless network is accidental association. In this paper, the authors propose a novel technique to secure the wireless signal to prevent accidental association. Layer 2 of each device is assigned with a unique time bound key and non time bound primary key.
