This paper is an overview of client authentication in Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs). Security policy issues for WLAN client authentication are briefly discussed. WLAN access management based on the WLAN security standards IEEE 802.11/WEP, IEEE 802.11X/ EAP, IEEE 802.11i/WPA and 802.11i/WPA2 is surveyed. Special attention is paid to implementations of certificate based client authentication. Newly proposed WLAN authentication protocols such as Statistical One-bit Lightweight Authentication (SOLA) and Protocol for carrying Authentication for Network Access (PANA) are also presented.
