Constants

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_NONE

Specifies that no cipher algorithm is enabled or supported.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_WEP40

Specifies a Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) algorithm, which is the RC4-based algorithm that is specified in the 802.11-1999 standard. This enumerator specifies the WEP cipher algorithm with a 40-bit cipher key.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_TKIP

Specifies a Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) algorithm, which is the RC4-based cipher suite that is based on the algorithms that are defined in the WPA specification and IEEE 802.11i-2004 standard. This cipher also uses the Michael Message Integrity Code (MIC) algorithm for forgery protection.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_CCMP

Specifies an AES-CCMP algorithm, as specified in the IEEE 802.11i-2004 standard and RFC 3610. Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) is the encryption algorithm defined in FIPS PUB 197.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_WEP104

Specifies a WEP cipher algorithm with a 104-bit cipher key.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_WPA_USE_GROUP

Specifies a Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) Use Group Key cipher suite. For more information about the Use Group Key cipher suite, refer to Clause 7.3.2.25.1 of the IEEE 802.11i-2004 standard.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_RSN_USE_GROUP

Specifies a Robust Security Network (RSN) Use Group Key cipher suite. For more information about the Use Group Key cipher suite, refer to Clause 7.3.2.25.1 of the IEEE 802.11i-2004 standard.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_WEP

Specifies a WEP cipher algorithm with a cipher key of any length.

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_IHV_START

Specifies the start of the range that is used to define proprietary cipher algorithms that are developed by an independent hardware vendor (IHV).

DOT11_CIPHER_ALGO_IHV_END

Specifies the end of the range that is used to define proprietary cipher algorithms that are developed by an IHV.
