Various authentication types, such as open authentication, shared key authentication, Service Set Identifier (SSID), authentication by client media access control and 802.1x/EAP (LEAP and PEAP), can be used with Cisco Access Points (APs).
The EAP authentication types include:
Security in the IEEE 802.11 specification, which applies to 802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g, has come under intense scrutiny. Appropriate security measures must be taken in regard to the authentication, data-privacy, and message-integrity mechanisms defined in the specification.
There are also some encryption standards that can be configured to provide more security, such as Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP), Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and Advanced Encryption standard (AES). For more information on how to configure the cipher suites and WEP, refer to Configuring Cipher Suites and WEP.
The AP can be configured as a local authenticator to serve as a stand-alone authenticator for a small wireless LAN or to provide backup authentication service. As a local authenticator, the AP performs LEAP, EAP-FAST, and MAC-based authentication for up to 50 client devices. For more information on how to configure the AP as a local authenticator, refer to Configuring an Access Point as a Local Authenticator
I haven't been able to find a clear answer on this online. Here is the scenario: In a building with existing APs already in the network, a new AP is being added. The AP is plugged into a switch, and has already discovered the WLC thro...
Hi I am just looking for some general info on the broadcast range of a 9120 AP.I am putting new install in a couple of warehouse type buildings, that are side by side.Have looked for the info and not finding.
I am using Cisco 3702 APs running the same code as the controller. When I connect to my SSID, everything works, but when I roam to another AP, I get asked for the PSK again. Sometimes it accepts it, other times it just says the PSK is incorrect. I have ve...
Hi, i have a site where we would like to conduct some wireless sniffing but are having some issues since the problem we suspect is AP->Controller traffic. It seems that we are losing some packets in the CAPWAP tunnel so an AP in sniffer mode on th...
