Fix Recommendation

Configure the access point for WPA2 authentication, confidentiality, and integrity services. In the case of WPA2 (Personal), this action will require the selection of a strong passcode or passphrase. In the case of WPA2 (Enterprise), this action will require the organization to deploy RADIUS or equivalent authentication services on a separate server. In cases in which the access point does not support WPA2, the organization will need to procure new equipment.

Check Contents

Verify the access point is configured for either WPA2 (Enterprise) or WPA2 (Personal) authentication. The procedure for performing this review will vary depending on the AP model. Have the SA show the configuration setting.
