Information security is a critical issue in the wireless network, because the transmission media is open (no physical control on the air). Any wireless device equipped with wireless interface can use and share the airwave transmission medium with other users. For protection purposes, several security mechanisms have been developed over years. This paper provides systematic evaluation of different security schemes used in wireless networks: WEP, TKIP, WPA, AES and WPA2. A formal comparison is made between these security algorithms for different settings such as different data types, different packet sizes and traffic loads.
