Wireless networks have become so ubiquitous that researchers all over the world have come up with various security protocols to ensure confidentiality and integrity of data as well as availability of resources. IEEE 802.11 task group drafted a new wireless security protocol known as Robust Security Network (RSN circa 2009) erstwhile Wi-Fi alliance came up with Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA).
