Hi,

The 802.11i is an IEEE standard. There is no RFC for it as far as I know. The RFCs are published by a different organization, the IETF.

However, you can download the 802.11 standard directly from IEEE using this link:

http://standards.ieee.org/getieee802/download/802.11-2007.pdf

This file is a complete version of the 802.11 standard as ratified in 2007 and it also includes the 802.11i which no longer exists as a separate standard. The security options originally proposed in 802.11i start in the section 8.3 of the 802.11 standard.

Happy reading :-)

Best regards,

Peter
