WPA2 AES encryption Key Sizes

Hi all,

Just looking at the AES standard, or wiki of it

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Advanced_Encryption_Standard

It mentions that AES supports the following (in the notes just at the bottom of the web page)

Key sizes of 128, 160, 192, 224, and 256 bits are supported by the Rijndael algorithm, but only the 128, 192, and 256-bit key sizes are specified in the AES standard.

Block sizes of 128, 160, 192, 224, and 256 bits are supported by the Rijndael algorithm, but only the 128-bit block size is specified in the AES standard.

What does the WLCs use for an AES key size when you enable a WPA2 policy with AES encryption?

Many thx

Ken

Re: WPA2 AES encryption Key Sizes

128 bits was supported on the autonomous code, so I'm sure the LWAPP solution also uses 128 bits with three possible key lengths 128, 192 and 256 bits.
