Nowadays, with the rapid increase of WLAN-enabled mobile devices and the more widespread use of WLAN, it is increasingly important to have a more efficient initial link setup mechanism, and there is a demand for a faster access authentication method faster than the current IEEE 802.11i. In this paper, through experiments we observe that the authentication delay of 802.11i is intolerable under some scenarios, and we point that the main reason resulting in such inefficiency is due to its design… CONTINUE READING
