Is the traffic from the guest user encrypted?

Hi,

The design is typical Cisco unified wireless solution. In such a implementation, is the traffic from the guest user who has successfully authenticated via WEB-AUTH encrypted? If so, what is the standard used, AES128 or TKIP?

merci,

arun

Web auth is LAYER 3 authentication and the LAYER 2 will be none meaning open authentication.. so its no encryption!!

Lemme know if this answered ur question!!

Yeah, i just now checked the SSID broadcast message in my PC. And it says unsecured wireless network for the guest WLAN.

Is there way to have any encryption standards for Guest user?

Thanks. We can't use both AES and web-auth togather rite? Also how many AES bits are used in WLC by default 128, 192 or 256?

We can use them both!! not sure about how many bits this uses.. i think 128, a packet capture will answer this question!!

Most AES implementations are in 128 bits by default..
