Abstract: Wireless networks have gained great popularity over the last few years, being able to move around while still maintaining connection is appealing to everyone. Along with the development of wireless networks came the need to provide a suitable level of security to ensure the privacy of the users. Several standards have been proposed and it is one of this thesis's objectives to describe and explain them pointing out their shortcomings. Additionally, there exist several products on the market today that promise to render the task of controlling access and managing wireless networks easier. In this thesis, in addition to overviewing the existing security solutions for wireless networks, we propose to model network traffic, specifically traffic from and to a webserver, using Benford's Law. Benford's Law also known as the law of anomalous numbers, states that the frequency of occurrence of digit d as the leading digit in naturally occurring numbers follows a logarithmic distribution, and not a uniform one as previously thought.
