Security Policy

Commonly Used Security Policy for Households and SOHO Networks

Households and SOHO networks do not require high security. They usually use the WPA/WPA2 personal edition and do not require an authentication server.

Commonly Used Security for Enterprise Networks

Enterprise networks require high security. They usually use the 802.1X-based WPA/WPA2 enterprise edition and deploy an authentication server.

Commonly Used Security Policy for Carrier Networks

Besides WEP, WPA/WPA2, and WAPI that are specific to wireless users, carriers can combine WLAN security policies with port authentication to enhance security of wireless users. Port authentication methods include 802.1X authentication, MAC address authentication, and Portal authentication. For details about the authentication methods, see NAC in the Feature description - Security.

As shown in Figure 25-20, a carrier WLAN network usually uses WEP (no authentication, no encryption) and Portal authentication. When a STA attempts to connect to wireless network, the central AP pushes the Portal authentication web page to the user. The user must enter the user name and password on the displayed web page. If the user is successfully authenticated by the RADIUS server, the user can connect to the Internet wirelessly.
