It's known to all that the use of wireless communication and its applications are increasing rapidly day-by-day. Along with the spreaded wireless network more & more intruders are also being active to break the security of wireless networks. So there is necessity for the security algorithm for the Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN). Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) is the part of IEEE 802.11 standard which aims to give such kind of protection, & the security provided is supposed to be equivalent to wired networks. The algorithm introduced in the paper covers the Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP) and the possible enhancements in Wired Equivalent Protocol (WEP).
