AES-CCMP

(AES-Counter Mode CBC-MAC Protocol) The encryption algorithm used in the 802.11i security protocol. It uses the AES block cipher, but restricts the key length to 128 bits. AES-CCMP incorporates two sophisticated cryptographic techniques (counter mode and CBC-MAC) and adapts them to Ethernet frames to provide a robust security protocol between the mobile client and the access point.

AES itself is a very strong cipher, but counter mode makes it difficult for an eavesdropper to spot patterns, and the CBC-MAC message integrity method ensures that messages have not been tampered with. See 802.11i, AES, counter mode and CBC-MAC.

Featuring high-security 128-bit AES-CCMP encryption, the Model 210C will meet the requirements in most municipal, public safety and federal applications.
The module also includes support for EAP-TLS, EAP-TTLS, PEAP and LEAP with AES-CCMP supported in the hardware.
It supports both TKIP (WPA) and AES-CCMP (WPA2) security-enabled networks and integrates with authentication services such as Active Directory[R].
