Abstract: Wireless network equipment offers great flexibility for mobile as
well as stationary computers. Clients are no longer bound by the length of a
network cable. Instead wireless connectivity increases the clients’ mobility.
This paper describes an implementation for wireless clients to access a wired
computer network through an efficient authentication mechanism. The imple-mentation
is called SuxNet, and is a contribution to IP-login [8] and Institute of
Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) 802.1x [3]. The paper also explains
and evaluates different security concepts such as Wired Equivalent Privacy
(WEP) and IEEE 802.1x.
