CONFIGURING USER ENCRYPTION
Mobility System Software (MSS) encrypts wireless user traffic for all users
who are successfully authenticated to join an encrypted SSID and who are
then authorized to join a VLAN.
Overview MSS supports the following types of encryption for wireless user traffic:
Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)
WPA2 (Robust Security Network)
Non-WPA dynamic Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP)
Non-WPA static WEP
WEP is described in the IEEE 802.11 standard and WPA is described in the
WPA and 802.11i provide stronger security than WEP. (802.11i uses
Robust Security Network (RSN), and is sometimes called WPA2.)
To use WPA or RSN, a client must support it. For non-WPA clients, MSS
supports WEP. If your network contains a combination of WPA, RSN,
clients and non-WPA clients, you can configure MSS to provide
encryption for both types of clients.
To configure encryption parameters for an SSID, create or edit a service
profile, map the service profile to a radio profile, and add radios to the
radio profile. The SSID name, advertisement setting (beaconing), and
encryption settings are configured in the service profile.
