WCN_VALUE_TYPE_AUTHENTICATION_TYPE enumeration (wcntypes.h)

The WCN_VALUE_TYPE_AUTHENTICATION_TYPE enumeration defines the authentication types supported by the Enrollee (access point or station).

Syntax

typedef enum tagWCN_VALUE_TYPE_AUTHENTICATION_TYPE {
  WCN_VALUE_AT_OPEN,
  WCN_VALUE_AT_WPAPSK,
  WCN_VALUE_AT_SHARED,
  WCN_VALUE_AT_WPA,
  WCN_VALUE_AT_WPA2,
  WCN_VALUE_AT_WPA2PSK,
  WCN_VALUE_AT_WPAWPA2PSK_MIXED
} WCN_VALUE_TYPE_AUTHENTICATION_TYPE;

Constants

 
WCN_VALUE_AT_OPEN
Specifies IEEE 802.11 Open System authentication.
WCN_VALUE_AT_WPAPSK
Specifies WPA security. Authentication is performed between the supplicant and authenticator over IEEE 802.1X. Encryption keys are dynamic and are derived through the preshared key used by the supplicant and authenticator.

Note  Not supported in WPS 2.0.

 
WCN_VALUE_AT_SHARED
Specifies IEEE 802.11 Shared Key authentication that uses a preshared WEP key.

Note  Not supported in WPS 2.0.

 
WCN_VALUE_AT_WPA
Specifies WPA security. Authentication is performed between the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server over IEEE 802.1X. Encryption keys are dynamic and are derived through the authentication process.

Note  Not supported by most access points, consider WPA2PSK authentication instead.

 

Note  Not supported in WPS 2.0.

 
WCN_VALUE_AT_WPA2
Specifies WPA2 security. Authentication is performed between the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server over IEEE 802.1X. Encryption keys are dynamic and are derived through the authentication process.

Note  Not supported by most access points, consider WPA2PSK authentication instead.

 
WCN_VALUE_AT_WPA2PSK
Specifies WPA2 security. Authentication is performed between the supplicant and authenticator over IEEE 802 1X. Encryption keys are dynamic and are derived through the preshared key used by the supplicant and authenticator.
WCN_VALUE_AT_WPAWPA2PSK_MIXED
Specifies WPAPSK/WPA2PSK mixed-mode encryption.

Note  Available starting in Windows 8.1.
