The authentication of the existing wireless LAN standard IEEE802.11b is not user authentication but it is device authentication also this have many vulnerabilities. As a result to complement the weak of IEEE802.11b authentication, the IEEE802.1x had developed in the sense of providing strong user authentication with appropriate mechanism. But this new mechanism do not perform AP (Access Point) authentication and there are also some weak points. For that reason in this paper we propose strong user authentication mechanism in IEEE802.11 wireless LAN environment. This mechanism is based on existing 802.1x and through TLS the user authentication is performed in all of wireless LAN components.
