With the fast growth of wireless networking in population, security became an essential issue for data privacy. Encryption mechanisms relying on static key structure, such as WEP (802.11) and TKIP (802.1x), are vulnerable to key cracking by capturing wireless packets. Although new standards have been developed to fulfill this gap, there is still a lack of a stable security protocol. In this paper, the authors present a light-weight and solid i-key encryption protocol to enhance the security of wireless communication.
