    Abstract

    Security in WiFi networks has become a major concern as the wireless networks are vulnerable to security threats than wired networks. The 802.11i wireless networks uses 4 way handshake protocol to distribute the key hierarchy in order to encrypt the data communication. In our previous research work [2], we have discussed the use of Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), for key distribution in 802.11 wireless networks. The whole communication flow of our proposed protocol can be split into several key processes. It can be seen that these processes can be implemented efficiently using Software Agents. In this paper we shall discuss the use of Software Agents in quantum cryptography based key distribution in WiFi wireless networks
