Sets the WLAN's encryption type

Supported in the following platforms:

  • Access Points — AP505i, AP510i/e, AP560i/h
  • Service Platforms — NX5500, NX7500, NX9500, NX9600, VX9000

encryption-type Configures the WLAN's data encryption parameters
ccmp Configures Advanced Encryption Standard Counter Mode CBC-MAC Protocol (AES-128CCM/CCMP)
gcmp256 Configures AES-GCM (Advanced Encryption Standard-Galois Counter Mode) protocol (WPA3-Enterprise 192-bit) encryption mode. GCMP-256 is a block cipher which works on 256-bit blocks.
Note: GCMP encryption is only supported with eap authentication-type. For more infromation, see authentication-type.
Note: GCMP encryption is only supported with mandatory protected management frames. For more information, see protected-mgmt-frames.
keyguard Configures Keyguard Mobile Computing Mode (MCM)
tkip-ccmp Configures the TKIP and AES-CCM/CCMP encryption modes
wep128 Configures WEP with 128 bit keys
wep128-keyguard Configures WEP128 as well as Keyguard-MCM encryption modes
wep64 Configures WEP with 64 bit keys. A WEP64 configuration is insecure when two WLANs are mapped to the same VLAN, and one uses no encryption while the other uses WEP.
