Fields

Ihv Ihv Ihv

Specifies an authentication type defined by an independent hardware vendor (IHV).

None None None

No authentication enabled.

Open80211 Open80211 Open80211

Open authentication over 802.11 wireless. Devices are authenticated and can connect to an access point, but communication with the network requires a matching Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key.

Rsna Rsna Rsna

Specifies an IEEE 802.11i Robust Security Network Association (RSNA) algorithm. IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through the authentication process.

RsnaPsk RsnaPsk RsnaPsk

Specifies an IEEE 802.11i RSNA algorithm that uses PSK. IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant and authenticator. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through a pre-shared key that is used on both the supplicant and authenticator.

SharedKey80211 SharedKey80211 SharedKey80211

Specifies an IEEE 802.11 Shared Key authentication algorithm that requires the use of a pre-shared Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key for the 802.11 authentication.

Unknown Unknown Unknown

Authentication method unknown.

Wpa Wpa Wpa

Specifies a Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) algorithm. IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through the authentication process.

WpaNone WpaNone WpaNone

Wi-Fi Protected Access.

WpaPsk WpaPsk WpaPsk

Specifies a Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) algorithm that uses pre-shared keys (PSK). IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant and authenticator. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through a pre-shared key that is used on both the supplicant and authenticator.
