To improve the already tarnished reputation of WLAN security, the new IEEE 802.11i security standard provides means for an enhanced user authentication and strong data confidentiality. However, the standard focuses on securing higher-layer data, i.e., protecting IEEE 802.11 data frames. Management frames used for connection administration are left unprotected and a wide spectrum of known attacks is still applicable and even extended against the IEEE 802.11i/IEEE 802.1Xprotocol execution.
