Hemraj Saini, Kapil Dev Sharma, Pankaj Dadheech Author, T. C. Panda


In today‟s fast online information processing era, it is mandatory to deal with the security issues in the computer networks. WiFi Protected Access (WPA), IEEE802.11i, Data Encryption Standard (DES), Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) are used to achieve better security. The paper deals to explain and avoid the two types of attacks, Denial of Service (DoS) and Memory Exhaustion (ME), generated during the 4-way handshake process used for connection establishment over IEEE802.11i. Some amendments in 4-way handshake process are made to reduce these types of attacks. An enhanced 4-way Handshake Process over IEEE802.11i with Cookies Implementation is proposed with discussion. Finally, a conclusion and future work is provided with an exhausted result discussion and analysis of the work.
