Wireless local area networks (WLANs) have been widely used in many sectors. At the same time security concerns have been raised. This paper provides an overview of security threats and countermeasures in WLANs. The security attacks are described briefly and security solutions, such as encryption, authentication, access control, dynamic security link, wireless IDS, are discussed in this paper. Finally a suggestion about WLAN security is also presented.
