With the widespread use of wireless networks, securing data transmission becomes a basic requirement. The IEEE 802.11 standard which defines wireless networks communication, has proposed in its second version, IEEE 802.11b, a new protocol to offer some wired-like security services, such as: data privacy, data integrity, and authentication. In this paper, the authors analyze Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) security holes and they propose an improvement over WEP which achieves, in addition to its security goals, another security service which is replay detection.
