Multi v-ati intrebat, care este cea mai buna metoda de securizare a retelei Wi-Fi (wireless) de acasa. Mai jos sunt explicate fiecare metoda in parte:
Open (risky): Open Wi-Fi networks have no passphrase. You shouldn’t set up an open Wi-Fi network — seriously, you could have your door busted down by police.
WEP 64 (risky): The old WEP encryption standard is vulnerable and shouldn’t be used. Its name, which stands for “Wired Equivalent Privacy,” now seems like a joke.
WEP 128 (risky): WEP with a larger encryption key size isn’t really any better.
WPA-PSK (TKIP): This is basically the standard WPA, or WPA1, encryption. It’s been superseded and isn’t secure.
WPA-PSK (AES): This chooses the older WPA wireless protocol with the more modern AES encryption. Devices that support AES will almost always support WPA2, while devices that require WPA1 will almost never support AES encryption. This option makes very little sense.
WPA2-PSK (TKIP): This uses the modern WPA2 standard with older TKIP encryption. This isn’t secure, and is only a good idea if you have older devices that can’t connect to a WPA2-PSK (AES) network.
WPA2-PSK (AES): This is the most secure option. It uses WPA2, the latest Wi-Fi encryption standard, and the latest AES encryption protocol. You should be using this option. On devices with less confusing interfaces, the option marked “WPA2” or “WPA2-PSK” will probably just use AES, as that’s a common-sense choice.
WPAWPA2-PSK (TKIP/AES) (recommended): Our Comcast Xfinity router recommends this free-for-all option. This enables both WPA and WPA2 with both TKIP and AES. This provides maximum compatibility with any ancient devices you might have, but also ensures an attacker can breach your network by cracking the lowest-common-denominator encryption scheme. This TKIP+AES option may also be called WPA2-PSK “mixed” mode.
