the broadcast WEP key

With the Cisco server based authentication security scheme, is the broadcast WEP key identical for all clients in that particular RF cell?

Re: the broadcast WEP key

Most client cards can handle multiple WEP keys, as can the APs.

This means you can divide your total user population into multiple groups so that you do not have to expire everyone key at the same time. Of course you then have multiple user groups to maintain, but if you are after a separation of groups (students vs. faculty, PHBs vs. workers) then this is practical.

Multiple instances of LEAP would just be more of the same. It will help a lot when Cisco delivers long-promised multiple VLAN capabilities for the AP!
