Members 
Description 
auOpen 
Specifies an IEEE 802.11 Open System authentication algorithm.  
auSharedKey 
Specifies an 802.11 Shared Key authentication algorithm that requires the use of a pre-shared Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key for the 802.11 authentication.  
auWpa 
Specifies a Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) algorithm. IEEE 802.1X port authentication is performed by the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through the authentication process.
This algorithm is valid only for BSS types of bssInfrastructure.
When the WPA algorithm is enabled, the 802.11 station will associate only with an access point whose beacon or probe responses contain the authentication suite of type 1 (802.1X) within the WPA information element (IE).
 
auWpaPsk 
Specifies a WPA algorithm that uses preshared keys (PSK). IEEE 802.1X port authentication is performed by the supplicant and authenticator. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through a preshared key that is used on both the supplicant and authenticator.
This algorithm is valid only for BSS types of bssInfrastructure.
When the WPA PSK algorithm is enabled, the 802.11 station will associate only with an access point whose beacon or probe responses contain the authentication suite of type 2 (preshared key) within the WPA IE.
 
auWpaNone 
This value is not supported.  
auRsna 
Specifies an 802.11i Robust Security Network Association (RSNA) algorithm. WPA2 is one such algorithm. IEEE 802.1X port authentication is performed by the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through the authentication process.
This algorithm is valid only for BSS types of bssInfrastructure.
When the RSNA algorithm is enabled, the 802.11 station will associate only with an access point whose beacon or probe responses contain the authentication suite of type 1 (802.1X) within the RSN IE.
 
auRsnaPsk 
Specifies an 802.11i RSNA algorithm that uses PSK. IEEE 802.1X port authentication is performed by the supplicant and authenticator. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through a preshared key that is used on both the supplicant and authenticator.
This algorithm is valid only for BSS types of bssInfrastructure.
When the RSNA PSK algorithm is enabled, the 802.11 station will associate only with an access point whose beacon or probe responses contain the authentication suite of type 2(preshared key) within the RSN IE.
 
auUnknown 
The authentication algorithm is unknown or invalid.
