Abstract: This project focuses on wireless network security and in particular it evaluates the security solutions being used by the case study organization, with its major focus on assessing the level of wireless local area network security awareness and procedures of WLAN use. It explores the possible methods of securing IEEE 802.11 based Wireless LANs. The project frames the WLAN implementation within the context of the overa WLAN security design for organizations. The design solution represents a policy-based approach to security. This type of approach focuses on overall design goals and translates those goals into specific configurations, policy enforcement, procedures for WLAN use and guidelines for management to use when selecting a suitable WLAN security solution. In the context of wireless, it is recommended that organizations should also consider network design elements such as strong policy framework, mobility and quality of service (Q0S) when deciding on an overall WLAN design. This report contains five chapters. Chapter 1 begins with a general Introduction of the project, stating its objectives and scope among other things, and then chapter 2, details the specific WLAN security technologies in the literature review. Chapter 3 explains the methodology used during the study. The findings from the study and results analysis are explained in chapter 4. Finally, chapter 5 then concludes the report with recommendations and future study.
