T-KIP is a new encryption standard for wireless networks in an effort to increase security. C-KIP is Cisco's iteration of the same. T-KIP stands for Temporal Key Integrity Protocol. It will work with wireless WEP (Web Enabled Privacy), but adds two key components. First is improved data encryption through the use of the temporal key. It includes a hashing algorithm and some checking features to assure the key has not been manipulated or tampered with. User authentication (normally lacking in WEP) is also included through Extensible Authentication Protocol. This works off the MAC address of the network card.
