Abstract: Today wireless communication technique has become an essential tool in any application that requires communication between one or more sender(s) and multiple receivers. Since multiple users can use this technique simultaneously over a single channel, security has become a huge concern. Even though there are numerous ways to secure a wireless network and protect the network from numerous attacks, providing 100% security and maintaining confidentiality is a huge challenge in recent trends. This journal will present you a survey about the various threats to wireless networks, the various advancements in securing a network and the various challenges in implementing the same.
