WICED Studio Wi-Fi Combo

Anonymous
Not applicable

Hi @ all,

I've found a mix security type for WPA2 called 'WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_MIXED_PSK'. As I can see, the encryption can be changed but allways WPA2 is used. Regarding IEEE 802.11 there are two configuration mandantory:

1) WPA + TKIP

2) WPA2 + AES-based CCMP

Is WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_MIXED_PSK designed for stations and/or access points?

But how can I use WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_MIXED_PSK? Or what is it good for?

Thanks for helping,

Jan Gottwald

The trigger of my question is:

When I configure WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_MIXED_PSK on my hardware (STA) and try to connect to an AP with WPA2+TKIP, the connection fails.

Hi,

In general WPA2 mixed with AES and PSK has a greater level of support and connection to server. TKIP has a known security vulnerability and it is suggest to use WPA2+AES.

It should be noted also WPA2+TKIP is not the Wi-Fi Alliance's legal combination. Wi-Fi Alliance specify WPA2 should be used with AES.
