Despite the growing popularity of WLANs in organizations, recent studies have established that many implementations of authentication and access control in public WLANs are compromisable because design or selection of security features and how to configure them is a challenge to many WLAN implementers. While researchers have designed various approaches for selecting different authentication and access control mechanisms, these
approaches are piecemeal and therefore not sufficient on their own to comprehensively address design or selection of various security features and how to configure them. Poor implementation of authentication and access control security in large public WLANs such as those in universities is therefore the main problem addressed in this research.
The main focus of this study was development of a simulation model that facilitates implementation and evaluation of WLAN authentication and access control security in a public WLAN. In this research, we investigated IEEE 802.11 implementation specific issues that may contribute to poor WLAN authentication and access control security performance. Secondly, we analyzed security offered by WLAN cipher suites,authentication and access control mechanisms, end user and server system software used in WLAN authentication and access control.
