Which combination of WLAN authentication and encryption is recommended as a best practice for home users?
- WEP and TKIP
- WPA2 and AES
- EAP and AES
- WPA and PSK
- WEP and RC4
Answers Explanation & Hints:
WPA2 is the Wi-Fi alliance version of 802.11i, the industry standard for authentication. Neither WEP nor WPA possess the level of authentication provided by WPA2. AES aligns with WPA2 as an encryption standard, and is stronger than TKIP or RC4. PSK refers to pre-shared passwords, an authentication method that can be used by either WPA or WPA2. EAP is intended for use with enterprise networks which use a RADIUS server.
