Techopedia explains Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP)

TKIP features include:

  • Boosting encryption strength

  • Preventing collision attacks without hardware replacement

  • Serving as a WEP code wrapper and also adding per-packet mixing of media access control (MAC) base keys and serial numbers

  • Assigning a unique 48-bit sequencing number to each packet

  • Utilizing the RC4 stream cipher - 128-bit encryption keys and 64-bit authentication keys
