Paper Abstract

The Layered Service Provider (LSP) is a mechanism available in Microsoft Windows 95 and Windows 98 to insert a protocol layer between the Winsock library calls and the transport layer of the network protocol stack. This paper discusses the use of encryption at the LSP to provide for security on wireless LANs that is transparent to the applications. Use of the LSP allows similarly transparent cryptographic isolation over any medium that may be accessed by the network protocol stack. Hardware-based cryptography in the form of Fortezza cards was used for this project, but the approach works just as well with software-based cryptography. The system was developed jointly by teams at the University of Florida in its Integrated Process and Product Design (IPPD) course and a liaison engineer at Raytheon Systems Division.
