Dynamic WEP

Dynamic WEP is a change to Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) that changes WEP keys dynamically, a change that made it into WPA's TKIP system. Dynamic WEP was likely developed as a response to WEP's security flaws, that can lead to a wireless network being compromised in a matter of minutes. WEP2 and WEPplus are two other extensions on top of WEP, which made changes (some later kept with WPA) that tried to address the security concerns.
