Configuring Security

Security Type

Click Configure > SSID > Click one of SSID > Wireless to access this screen.

​ The following describes the authentication types on this screen:

  • Open: Allows any client to associate with this network without any data encryption or authentication.

  • WPA2 PSK: Enter a pre-shared key of 8-64 case-sensitive characters to enable WPA2-PSK data encryption.

  • WPA2 Enterprise: Select Custom Radius to use an external Radius server or select the EnGenius Cloud Radius to use the EnGenius Cloud for 802.1X authentication.

  • OWE: When using hotspots in public, users are given better protection through the Wi-Fi Enhanced Open that provides unauthenticated encryption.

  • WPA3 Personal (SAE): This type features easier password selection for users to easily remember. It also feats a higher level of security wherein data stored and data traffic in the network will not be compromised even if the password was hacked and data was already transmitted. The upgrade also enabled the Simultaneous Authentication of Equals (SAE) which replaced the Pre-shared Keys (PSK) in WPA2-Personal.

  • WPA3/WPA2 Personal mixed: WPA2/WPA3 mixed mode allows for the coexistence of WPA2 and WPA3 clients on a common SSID. The passphrase for both WPA2 and WPA3 clients remains the same, the AP just advertises the different encryption cyphers available to be selected for use by the client. Clients choose which cypher to use for the wireless connection.

  • WPA3 Enterprise: This type was mainly built for tighter and consistent application of security protocols across networks of governments, establishments, enterprises, and financial institutions. Offering optional 192-bit minimum security, the WPA3 will make cryptographic tools better. Hence, better protection for sensitive data.
