SSL web auth equals encyrption?

If you use a self signed cert/SSL web auth page that uses LDAP usernames and passwords is the traffic there on considered encrypted or is it only my user name and password that gets encrypted ?

Re: SSL web auth equals encyrption?

If there is no layer 2 encryption going on, then only the authentication piece is encrypted by SSL. After the user is authenticated, there's no more encrypted communication with the AP/controller. You'd need layer 2 encryption (AES, TKIP, WEP), VPN, or possibly some sort of SSL proxy for additional encryption.
