For robust security, in 2004, the 802.11i workgroup announced WPA2 as a powerful solution that supports both encryption methods (AES and TKIP).
The IEEE 802.11i task group introduced the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) with WPA as a stop gap for existing WEP networks.
TKIP is an open protocol designed as an element of the 802.11i standard.
WPA utilizes improved encryption via the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) along with 802.1X as the framework for user authentication and encryption key distribution to provide enterprise grade security for Wi-Fi users.
The next security implementation, which was the Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), was also proven to have security gaps regarding the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) under specific conditions [25].
5) Highly Security Capability: WEP/WPA/WPA-PSK (TKIP, AES)/ WPA2/WPA2-PSK (TKIP, AES)/802.1X Authentication supported
64-bit/128-bit WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP, AES, WPA-PSK, WPA2-PSK
In addition, autonomous operation transparently supports a number of features designed to improve performance, including an internal diversity switch that selects antenna 1 or 2 for baseband signal processing as well as WPA2 security with WEP, TKIP and AES encryption in hardware.
Short Range Bluetooth, designed for WPAN, and Serial communication is standard on the Apex 3, while for long range wireless connectivity, the printer has optional Long Range Bluetooth or 802.11b/g WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, LEAP, WEP64/128, TKIP and AES/CCMP.
Features include IEEE 802.11i compliant radio with AES-CCMP (Advanced Encryption Standard-Counter Mode with Cipher Block Chaining Message Authentication Code Protocol) and TKIP (Temporal Key Integrity Protocol); a complete suite of 802.
