Abstract

In the recent years we have huge development of wireless technology. We are presently getting more subject to wireless technology. As we know wireless networks have broadcast nature so there are different security issues in the wireless communication. The security conventions intended for the wired systems can't be extrapolated to wireless systems. Hackers and intruders can make utilization of the loopholes of the wireless communication. Users must update to better security measures while connecting to open Wi-Fi hot-spots as they turn out to be more risky than useful. It would come across as a cause of concern to know that 42% of wireless 802.11 access points come with no security mechanisms. By this we mean they are not even protected by WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) or WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access). This research paper lighted some common issues of Wi-Fi security threats, challenges and how to measure such challenges.

Key Words
