In IEEE 802.11, open system authentication simply consists of two communications. An authentication is requested by the client, which contains the station ID (typically the MAC address). This is followed by an authentication response from the AP/router containing a success or failure message. An example of when a failure may occur is if the client’s MAC address is explicitly excluded in the AP/router configuration.

  • What are the benefits of this authentication scheme?
  • What are the security vulnerabilities of this authentication scheme?

Make a 3 page power point presentation from the paper.
