Wireless personal area network is a personal area network a network for interconnecting devices centered around an individual person's work space in which the connections are wireless. Typically, a wireless personal area network uses some technology that permits communication within about 10 meters i.e a very short range. One such technology is Bluetooth, which was used as the basis for a new standard, IEEE 802.15. The personal area network computing model allows all network computer system systems to take part within processing but at their respective ends, separately. This model allows sharing data & services but does not help other network computer system systems within processing. After that will study of Existing Security loop holes within wireless PAN based distributed network environment. The security threats are Hacker, cracker, crypto analysts, Brute Force attack , Man in Middle attack, Denial of services. In this research we will make the critical review on security loop holes of existing mechanisms. Then will create a new security mechanism to enhance security of data on wireless personal area network by customizing existing Encryption & Decryption Mechanisms. In this paper a critical review of security attack is discussed.
