Internet enabled wireless devices continue to proliferate and are expected to surpass traditional Internet in the near future. However, data security and privacy remain major concerns in the current generation of wireless connectivity. The wired equivalent privacy (WEP) protocol used within the 802.11 standard has "major security flaws" thus WLANs using the protocol are vulnerable to attacks. We propose a scrambling algorithm that reduces the vulnerability of the WEP. Both the software and hardware implementations of the algorithm reveal at least 10,000 times improvement in security.
