Selection of EAP Authentication Method for use in a Public WLAN: Implementation Environment Based Approach


This paper presents IEEE 802.11 implementation specific issues that may contribute to poor WLAN authentication and access control security performance in a public WLAN. It will also analyse five EAP methods and present a proposed implementation environment based approach for selection of an Extensible Authentication protocol (EAP) method for a Public WLAN authentication.
