    With the availability and popularity of lightweight, multifunctional, portable and highly efficient electronic gadgets, the use of wireless local area networks is increasing very rapidly. The need of availability and accessibility to the fresh information, always and everywhere irrespective of the geographic location has increased the demand and hence the development of network based applications. The wireless networking technologies provide its users mobility, flexibility, connectivity and scalability etc. Although wireless networking technologies have many advantages over its wired counterpart, on the other side these technologies have certain security issues also. One of the major security issues in the WLANs is user authentication, which is the main concern of the work presented in this paper. Many authentication and access control protocols for WLANs are available and are in use.
