discourage counterfeiting.
WEP
Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a security protocol specified in IEEE 802.11 to

by encrypting data over radio so that it is protected as it is transmitted from one 
end point to another.
WIA
Windows Imaging Architecture (WIA) is an imaging architecture that is originally 
introduced in Windows Me and Windows XP. A scan can be initiated from within 
these operating systems by using a WIA-compliant scanner.

computer networks, which was created to improve upon the security features of 
WEP.
