encryption and 802.1x authentication is currently regarded as the best way of securing enterprise-level wireless networks. You are required to do personal research to complete the following questions regarding this topic:

A. Describe 802.1x authentication and the steps that when a wireless client connects to a network using RADIUS server for authentication.

B. Explain the PEAP protocol – how does it differ from EAP and what EAP deficiency does it address?

C. What makes a brute-force attack both particularly difficult and potentially easy on a wireless network using AES/CCMP encryption and 802.1x authentication? Hint: What do you need to know in order to attempt the attack?

D. Assume an office wireless network was only configured with WPA2-AES encryption (i.e. no additional authentication standards). What problems would this cause?

E. Assume an office wireless network was only configured with 802.1x authentication (i.e. no additional encryption). What problems would this cause?
