Hello everyone!

I am going to deploy Cisco Aironet AP's throughout the enterprise soon.

I have stood up a server running the latest version of Cisco ACS for Windows.

The clients, that will access the wireless network, will be a mix of Cisco wireless cards and non-cisco wireless cards.

Obviously, I'd like to be as secure as possible?

Which authentication method should I use?

EAP-TLS, LEAP, PEAP or EAP-FAST??

Should I also implement mac filtering?

Thanks for your assitance!

Hi Eric

There is a very good document about security in wireless networks: "SAFE. Wireless LAN Security in Depth" ( http://www.cisco.com/en/US/netsol/ns339/ns395/ns176/ns178/networking_solutions_white_paper09186a008009c8b3.shtml )

It compares all the security methods avalaible and recommends what to use depending on the size and the kind of your business, and the advantages and disadvantages of every method. It was very helpful for me when I deployed my first WI-FI network.

Hope this helps
