dc.description.abstract Wireless is the next generation networking technology. The security of such technology is very critical because its physical layer is the electro-magnetic waves that can be easily intercepted by anyone. The original security protocol for 802.11 wireless networks is called \VEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy), it is a symmetric-key encryption algorithm that is based on RC4 (Rivest Cipher 4). Unfortunately this protocol had many flaws that made it exposed to many attacks. This thesis presents a set of improvements for WEP: these improvements convert WEP to a hybrid cryptosystem, a system that is based on both a symmetric-key algorithm and an asymmetric-key algorithm. en_US
