Address with each equipment according to the situation.

EAP (Extensible Authentication

Protocol)

A method adapted as an IEEE802.1x authentication protocol. Although there are various authentication systems, the unit supports the PEAP (MS-CHAP v2) and

EAP-TLS.

IEEE 802.1x Authentication

The authentication system which generates and transport dynamic encryption key. The

IEEE 802.1x Authentication utilizes an authentication protocol called EAP and external server called RADIUS.

IP Address

The address to recognize each connected machine in the TCP/IP network.

LAN (Local Area Network)

The network to be used in a limited area such as an office or home.

MAC Address

WEP security system. The TKIP automatically generates encryption key each time a specific volume of data or time expires. The TKIP’s dynamic changes in encryption key makes decoding of encryption key more difficult, improving security.

WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)

The security system to communicate the encrypted data.

Register the same key as that of the connected computer to communicate.

WPA (Wi-FI Protected Access)

Security standards for wireless LAN. The

WPA supports the strong TKIP encryption and the IEEE 802.1x Authentication.

Although the IEEE 802.1x Authentication requires an authentication server, the WPA provides two methods: one requiring an authentication server and another where no authenticator server is used.

WPA-PSK

Stands for the WPA method where no authentication server is used. The system authenticates wireless LAN terminals with a shared key called PSK. By registering the same key with the connected computers, you can exchange data communications.
