5.18 What is Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP)?
The Temporal Key Integrity Protocol, pronounced tee-kip, is part of the IEEE 802.11i encryption standard for wireless
LANs. TKIP is the next generation of WEP, the Wired Equivalency Protocol, which is used to secure 802.11 wireless
LANs. TKIP provides per-packet key mixing, a message integrity check and a re-keying mechanism, thus fixing the flaws
of WEP.
5.19 What is Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)?
Security issues are a major concern for wireless LANs, AES is the U.S. government’s next
-generation cryptography algo-
rithm, which will replace DES and 3DES.
5.20 What is Inter-Access Point Protocol (IAPP)?
The IEEE 802.11f Inter-Access Point Protocol (IAPP) supports Access Point Vendor interoperability, enabling roaming of
802.11 Stations within IP subnet.
IAPP defines messages and data to be exchanged between Access Points and between the IAPP and high layer management
entities to support roaming. The IAPP protocol uses TCP for inter-Access Point communication and UDP for RADIUS re-
quest/response exchanges. It also uses Layer 2 frames to update the forwarding tables of Layer 2 devices.
5.21 What is Wireless Distribution System (WDS)?
The Wireless Distribution System feature allows WLAN AP to talk directly to other APs via wireless channel, like the
wireless bridge or repeater service.
5.22 What is Universal Plug and Play (uPNP)?
UPnP is an open networking architecture that consists of services, devices, and control points. Theultimate goal is to allow
data communication among all UPnP devices regardless of media, operating system, programming language, and
wired/wireless connection.
