Cisco LEAP is an 802.1X authentication type for Wireless LANs (WLANs) that supports strong mutual authentication between the client and a RADIUS server, with a logon password as the shared secret. It provides dynamic per-user, per-session encryption keys. LEAP is based on EAP, an extension to Point-to-Point Protocol (PPP).
LEAP is only supported on client adapters that support WEP, and use either the PCM, LMC, or PCI cards with firmware version 4.13 or later, or mini PCI card firmware version 5.0 or later. To use LEAP, the client adapter and Cisco Access Point (AP) firmware must have matching IEEE 802.1x draft standards.
Special attention must be paid to the use of strong passwords. Cisco LEAP is a password-based algorithm. To minimize the possibility of a successful dictionary attack, use strong passwords, which are difficult to guess. Strong passwords are:
A minimum of ten characters
A mixture of uppercase and lowercase letters
Comprised of at least one numeric character or one non-alphanumeric character (example: !#@$%)
No form of the user's name or user ID
A word that is not found in the dictionary (domestic or foreign)
