In the near future, computing environment can be expected based on the recent progresses and advances in computing and communication technologies. Next generation of mobile communications will include both prestigious infrastructure wireless networks. IEEE Standards 802 ease the deployment of networking infrastructures and provides employers to access corporate networks while travelling. These standards provide two modes of communication called infrastructure and ad hoc modes. At present Wireless network has been deployed worldwide, but some security issues in wireless network might have prevented its further acceptance. IEEE 802.1X specification is a technique for port-based network handover control and one of the solutions to overcome the limitation of wireless network security, which is based on Rivest, Shamir and Adleman. It is an authentication framework that can support public-key cryptography. Base station algorithm involves three steps: key generation, password based encryption, decryption between base stations and it is flexible in its implementation. Protocol is safe against all type of passive and active attack; and the authenticator authenticate each other which reduces the authentication packet loss and encryption/decryption time.
