The hope of implementing 802.11n is so that consumers may be able to use more of a range of products.
uses cryptographic tunneling protocols to provide the necessary confidentiality (preventing snooping ), sender authentication (preventing identity spoofing ), and message integrity (preventing message alteration) to achieve the privacy intended. When properly chosen, implemented, and used, such techniques can provide secure communications over unsecured networks
