WEP or WPA2?

February 20, 2009

You’re configuring an access point with MAC filtering and WEP encryption, but the security administrator says that WEP encryption should not be used. As a standard, the security administrator has selected WPA2 instead. Why would he insist on WPA2?

A) WPA2 is a smarter encryption technology and will automatically configure itself.

B) Vulnerabilities in WEP have been found, rendering the WEP encryption algorithms essentially worthless.

C) WPA2 is an international standard, and WEP is not.

D) There’s no technical difference between WEP and WPA2. The security administrator simply has a personal preference.
