Which of these standards use AES with CCMP?
E) None of these
F) I like the standards that have a nice melody
The answer: D) WPA2
WPA was the encryption standard that bridged the gap between WEP and WPA2. The RC4 encryption algorithm was lightweight enough to work on the older WEP-compliant access points, but was ultimately replaced by AES when the WPA2 standard was finalized.

Our wireless networks would be worthless if they didn’t include complex encryption methods. In this video, you’ll learn about the WEP, WPA, and WPA2 encryption protocols.
