Abstract

Demand for wireless communications around the world is growing. IEEE 802.11 wireless networks, also known as Wi-Fi, are one of the popular wireless networks with over millions of users across the globe. Hence, providing secure communication for wireless networks has become one of the prime concerns. We have proposed a Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) based novel protocol to exchange the encryption key in Wi-Fi networks. In this paper, we present the protocol modifications done in the existing IEEE 802.11 standard to implement the proposed QKD based key exchange
