Wireless communication networks are in huge need and demand due to various features of Internet and its availability and easy accessibility all over the world. Therefore, advanced security techniques and mechanism are required for private business application and for effective and secured data transfer from one network to other. Many common standards such as 6LoWPAN, Zigbee (IEEE 802.15.4-2006), WiFi (IEEE 802.11) and many more are being used for wireless standard. Many techniques used today having weak security and loop holes that can easily be attacked to gain access over the networks such as Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) can easily be stabbed with the ample availability of tools and the data present can be modified or read by the mediator.
