TKIP versus AES?

Discussion in 'Wireless Internet' started by William P.N. Smith, Feb 5, 2006.

  1. I know the basics of the difference (change the keys every once in a
    while versus a better encryption algorythm), but is there any
    practical difference (better security, better interoperability)
    between the two?

    Is WPA with AES the same as WPA2, aka 802.11i?

    Will the built-in WinDoze XP supplicant handle any and all of the
    above?

    Thanks!

    I understood WPA-PSK AES to be WPA2...

    This just came up in one of our meetings and after everything I read,
    it seems like WPA w/ AES would be WPA2, but if anyone has a link to
    documentation confirming this, I certainly would appreciate it.
