WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy) is the weakest and an outdated encryption mechanism used by the routers(access points) to encrypt data packets passing through the router itself.

As we studied here, WEP uses 64-bit and 128-bit encryption as a standard, but security researchers discovered many flaws in the encryption mechanism of WEP , like static key generation, fast re-keying method.
