Temporal Key Integrity Protocol

To improve data encryption, WPA utilizes TKIP.

TKIP dynamically changes keys as the system is used, and provides a message integrity check and a re-keying mechanism, thus fixing the flaws of WEP. An important part of TKIP is that it changes the key used for each packet. This is the "temporal" part. TKIP is one of the two choices provided by both WAPs and Operating Systems (such as Windows XP) when initializing WPA protection on your wireless network.
