    Abstract

    Wireless technology is rapidly evolving, and is playing an important role in the lives of people throughout the world. Due to the nature of open guide medium of wireless communications, it is possible for an adversary to snoop on confidential communications or modify them to gain access to the wireless networks more easily than with wired networks, which has been drawing great attentions. In this paper, we focus on improving the security of IEEE 802.11 networks through secure key distribution using Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) which offer unconditional security between two communication parties. In our previous research work, we have demonstrated a novel protocol using quantum cryptography for secure key distribution in IEEE 802.11 networks. In our current paper, we analysis the experimental results we obtained in our previous research works, which will be focusing on the reconciliation phase of this protocol.
