PERFORMANCE EVALUATION OF WPA2 SECURITY PROTOCOL IN MODERN WIRELESS NETWORKS




Abstract:
This paper evaluates performance impact of WPA2 security protocol on various operating systems in modern wireless networks. For the purpose of experiments IEEE 802.11n wireless network platform was deployed. Metrics of throughput and jitter were obtained during the generation of TCP and UDP data flows in different security scenarios. Experimental results showed that IPv4 operating systems achieve higher throughput values than IPv6 systems under the same conditions within the IEEE 802.11n wireless network. Results further indicate that WPA2 security protocol reduces value of throughput and increases jitter in wireless networks.
