I agree Mike. We have had these standards for years in all of our schools.

 

Have a good Day

In this day and age it’s nuts _not_ to have encryption on your wireless.

Hi all,

Keith Puffer was doing some more reading and we discussed at WWSU:

http://vt.portal.airast.org/wp-content/uploads/2015/01/Technology-Requirements-Module-FINALnon-narrated_0109151.pptx slide 12

And found this:

Wireless traffic must use encryption.

Wi-Fi Protected Access II (WPA2) 

Advanced Encryption Standard (AES)  

 

 

Many elementary schools have open networks, no encryption.  This will involve some additional config and touch to each system if not already configured.  Encryption is a good thing and I can see the need esp. high school.

 

Anyone know how hard and fast this rule is?

 

Is this a surprise to you?
