Wireless networks broadcast messages using radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks. WEP was proposed to give confidentiality comparable to that of a classic wired network.

To address the confidentiality issues of trade wireless networks, the 802.11 standard includes a simple mechanism for encryption of data, it is Wired Equivalent Privacy.
