2.1.1.d: Strong Encryption for Wireless Connections
Examine all wireless connections to verify that no weak protocols are used to connect to wireless access points


Some key-exchange protocols for older versions of wireless protocol 802.11x encryption (Wired Equivalent Privacy, or WEP) has been broken and can render the encryption useless. If any of the endpoints in the CDE use this protocol to connect to wireless access points, they can be easily compromised.

Action1 automates assessment of this PCI requirement by checking all configured wireless connections on the endpoints to make sure that both authentication and transmission protocols are secure and no outdated protocols, such as WEP, are in use.

Sign-up for Action1 Free Edition to install/uninstall software and patches, receive real-time alerts and view instant data from your endpoints, or run live or scheduled queries with the ability to export to CSV or Excel. Action1 Endpoint Security Platform is entirely SaaS, with online web interface (no management tools to install) and it has zero cost for basic functionality. Running in the Cloud, Action1 discovers all of your endpoints in seconds and you can query your entire network in plain English.
