Whitepaper: COMPASS: Decentralized Management and Access Control for WLANs

by Ecole Nationale Superieure des TelecommunicationsJan 01, 2008

This paper published by COMPASS, proposes new decentralized access control architecture for modern WLANs. Using auto-organization and fault recovery mechanisms of modern P2P systems, it is robust and easier to maintain. As traditional centralized access control systems like AAA do not scale well, the paper proposes the use of P2P technologies for the distribution of management data directly between the deployed WLAN access points.
