Enhanced Wi-Fi Security of University Premises Using MAC Address and Randomly Generated Password
Many solutions are available for setting up wireless home networks to get internet connectivity working as quickly as possible. It is also quite risky as numerous security problems can result. Today’s Wi-Fi networking products do not always help the situation as configuring their security features, and they can be time-consuming. In this paper, an improved security protocol is proposed for University premises, which is a combination of the process of MAC address filtering and random password generation. If the MAC address match, then the server will send a randomly generated password to the client. As a result, the whole network will face fewer intruders, and the security will be of top-notch. The proposed security solution was compared with the existing four security methods. The proposed solution has universality as the device and software needed for it is available all over the world.
