Full text: PDF


Wireless LANs are open and are vulnerable to various attacks. Techniques available to prevent Wireless LANs from these attacks are not comprehensive. In this paper we discuss the drawbacks of the existing security mechanisms and we provide a security architecture which uses Mobile agents as a security facilitator. Using this architecture, users have freedom to choose from a variety of encryption techniques presently available, to secure their Wireless LANs.

Index Terms
