AbstractState Based Key Hop (SBKH) protocol provides a strong, lightweight encryption scheme for battery operated devices, such as the sensors in a wireless sensor network, as well as small office home office (SOHO) users. Although SBKH can be applied to many underlying protocols, in this paper, we focus on integrating SBKH with 802.11. Hence we compare SBKH with other 802.11 security protocols and show that SBKH eliminates all the issues with wired equivalent privacy (WEP) protocol, using the existing hardware and software as much as possible at a power and processing cost that is much lower than WiFi Protected Access (WPA) 1.0 or 2.0, and is cheaper than WEP.
