PRODUCT BULLETIN # 2757

Cisco Systems® announces the availability of a new release of Cisco Aironet® Software for Windows CE that provides support for Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), support for two new Windows CE .NET platforms, introduces seven new status window fields, updates one status window field, adds a new channel field for the Site Survey window, and provides updates to the Certificate Manager Utility and Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol (PEAP) Properties Window.

NEW FEATURES

The following new features are included in Cisco Aironet Software Release 2.60 for Windows CE. These features are supported by Cisco Aironet 350 Series wireless LAN client adapters and several Windows CE devices equipped with a Type II or Type III PC card slot. Features include:

Support for two new Windows CE .NET platforms-Two new Windows CE .NET platforms, ARMv4I and MIPSII, are supported with this release.

Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA)-This release supports WPA, a standards-based, interoperable security certification from the Wi-Fi Alliance. WPA greatly increases the level of data protection and access control for existing and future wireless LAN systems. WPA is derived from and is compatible with the IEEE 802.11i standard. WPA uses IEEE 802.1X for per-user authentication and Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) and Michael Message Integrity Check (MIC) for data encryption. WPA is supported by the Cisco Wireless Security Suite. To learn more about WPA and IEEE 802.11i, read the Wi-Fi Protected Access, WPA2, and IEEE 802.11i Q&A.

Fields added to the status window-The following fields have been added to the Cisco Aironet Client Utility Status window:

– Associated Access Point MAC Address-The MAC address of the access point to which your client adapter is associated.

– Associated Access Point IP Address-The IP address of the access point to which your client adapter is associated.

– Transmit Power-The power level at which your client adapter is currently transmitting. The maximum level is dependent upon your country's regulatory agency.

– Link Speed-The rate at which your client adapter is currently transmitting data packets.

– Channel Set-The regulatory domain for which your client adapter is currently configured, such as North America. This value is not user-selectable.

– MAC Address-The MAC address assigned to your client adapter at the factory.

– Encryption-The type of encryption that is being used for data packets.

Field updated on the status window-The Message Integrity Check (MIC) field on the Cisco Aironet Client Utility Status window has been updated to include more possible values for the MIC field (None, MMH, or Michael).

Channel field added to site survey windows-A Channel field has been added to the Site Survey Passive and Active windows. This field shows the channel frequency that your client adapter is using for communications. It is dependent upon the regulatory domain in which your device is operating.

Certificate Manager Utility-The Certificate Manager Utility can now be used to import Certificate Authority (CA) and user certificates for use with EAP-Transport Layer Security (EAP-TLS) and PEAP authentication on Windows CE .NET 4.2 devices.

PEAP Properties window-A check box entitled "Always try to resume Secure Session" for PEAP session resume has been added to the PEAP Properties window. Checking this box gives you the convenience of not having to re-enter your user name and password when your client adapter experiences momentary losses of association. However, if you leave your device unattended during this timeout period, be aware that someone can resume your PEAP session and access the network.
