Abstract: The protocols and other means of securing IEEE 802.11 wireless networks can be broken. This thesis describes the particular means of securing the network, such as SSID hiding, MAC address filtering, using WEP, WPA and WPA2 encryption and authentication, securing at higher network layers and such. Practical attacks on these security measures are shown, including denial of service and possibilities of man-in-the-middle attacks. Possible countermeasures for these attacks are proposed, as well as recommendations for users, administrators and equipment manufacturers are given.
