Abstract− Computer network technology is developing rapidly, along with the increasing need for the use of this technology.
Computer networks can be distinguished based on their scope. A computer network that covers a local area with relatively
close physical distances between nodes, such as at home, at the office, or a university, is known as a Local Area Network
(LAN). Wireless Network or Wireless LAN is a LAN that uses high-frequency radio waves as a substitute for cables for
communication between its nodes. Wireless LAN is specified in the IEEE 802.11 standard group or better known as Wi-Fi.
Because it does not use cables, wireless LAN allows high mobility for its users. The security mechanism that is felt to be the
most appropriate and possible is encryption. With encryption, even if the transmission is leaked and accessed by unauthorized
persons, the information contained in it cannot be known without the proper key. One of the encryption protocols used and the
first protocol on wireless networks is Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP). WEP is expected to provide security equivalent to a
wired two network or wired LAN. This protocol has been specified in the IEEE 802.11 (Wi-Fi) standard, although in reality,
the use of WEP is still optional.
