What does SEC/K9 implies in CISCO2811-SEC/K9?

I just want a "clean" Cisco 2811 to maybe add a module later on, and i wonder what SEC/K9 implies.

Another question i have is that if i "just" want a realiable router that can handle about 20 VLAN, NAT and firewall  in a company hotel, is Cisco 2811 overkill and what should i go with if in that case? My situation right now is that my customer might want WLAN management from us and then i was thinking of adding a CISCO NME-AIR-WLC6-K9 to a already installed Cisco 2811, but he may want for each company in the building to manage their own WLAN and then maybe the Cisco 2811 is overkill.

Tommy,

K9 in the image means that the image supports encryption.  For example without K9 in the image, you can not use SSH to access the router.  You can only use telnet.  Also, 2811 is pretty good route and it is not overkill.

SEC means it is a security IOS which gives you some security features like VPN, encryption and IDS,

K9 means it supports strong encrytion like AES,

K8 supports only weaker encryption like DES.
