ANALYSIS OF WEP PERFORMANCE ON MOBILE DEVICES

Arnulfo Ochoa Indart, Jesús Arturo Pérez Díaz

Abstract

Mobile devices are becoming more popular every day; they must keep up with security implemented by desktop computers. This paper tries to evaluate performance of data transmission with and without ciphering techniques. WEP is not the best way of securing a network but it is widely used, that is why we used WEP on these tests. This article tries to define how much performance is lost with WEP, so we can estimate the loss of performance on mobile devices when TKIP and WPA’s MIC protocols are implemented. We observed in the results that decrease on performance was more noticeable on PDAs than other devices such as laptops.
