Ensure wireless network connections use proper strong encryption for authentication and transmission |
Use of proper secure protocols can help to prevent eavesdropping across wireless networks and minimize the risk of data breaches. This query lists all wireless network connections that are configured on the endpoints and shows their configurations, such as type of authentication protocol being user, level of encryption and more. Connections with weak encryption (such as WEP) are flagged as non-compliant, because they cannot be used as a security control for authentication or transmission.
