Wireless Security Protocols and Encryption
The USC8718-M13-K9 Cisco Universal Small Wireless cellular modem supports various wireless security protocols to ensure secure communication over the wireless network. These protocols include:
- Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP): WEP is the oldest wireless security protocol and is no longer considered secure. It uses a 64-bit or 128-bit key for encryption.
- Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA): WPA is an improvement over WEP and uses a stronger encryption algorithm called Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP). It also includes a message integrity check to ensure that data has not been tampered with.
- Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2): WPA2 is the most secure wireless security protocol and uses Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for encryption. It also includes a message integrity check.
The USC8718-M13-K9 modem supports WPA2 with AES encryption to ensure secure communication over the wireless network. AES is a strong encryption algorithm and is considered unbreakable by brute force attacks. The modem also supports a pre-shared key (PSK) mode for easy deployment and a certificate-based mode for enterprise deployments.
In addition to these security protocols, the USC8718-M13-K9 modem also supports VPN pass-through to enable secure remote access to the corporate network. It also includes firewall features such as Access Control Lists (ACLs) and port forwarding to control access to the network.
