Research output: A Conference proceeding or a Chapter in BookConference contribution


Wireless technology is rapidly evolving, and is playing an important role in the lives of people throughout the world. Due to the nature 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. Out of many wireless networks, WiFi, known as IEEE 802.11, has attracted millions of users worldwide. Our previous research work has demonstrated a quantum cryptography based approach to distribute the secrete key in 802.11 networks. In the current paper, we attempt to focus on the simulations and the analysis of our implementation of the experimental results about the key distribution solutions to confirm our previous research results.
