Title

A new standard in secure networking

Author

Robert Denier

Abstract

"The growth of networks, both wired and wireless, has brought with it a tremendous increase in flexibility and ease of use in computing. Typical wired networks transmit frames encrypted. This has often been adequate since to intercept packets required to be in physical possession of the wires. Conversely, wireless networks have had encryption designed in from the beginning to protect against unauthorized use and reception of network data. The current encryption standard for wireless networks is wireless equivalent privacy (WEP). It has serious security weaknesses that have been effectively compromised. Newer options are currently available that are believed to not contain the same problems. Unfortunately, any system that shares a common key with many users if fundamentally insecure since it is impossible to trust every user in the system. This paper presents the author's own attempt to present a solution to this problem. This design is based on making a cryptographic layer that processes all network packets before sending it to the physical device for transmission"--Abstract, leaf iii.
