This work addresses the issues related to authentication in wireless LAN environments, with emphasis on the IEEE 802.11 standard. It proposes an authentication architecture for Wireless networks. This architecture called Wireless Kerberos (W-Kerberos), is based on the Kerberos authentication server and the IEEE 802.1X-EAP model, in order to satisfy both security and mobility needs. It then, provides a mean of protecting the network, assuring mutual authentication, thwarts cryptographic attack risks via a key refreshment mechanism and manages fast and secure Handovers between access points.
