hex (SSID) Element
The hex (SSID) element contains the SSID of a wireless LAN in hexadecimal format.
<xs:element name="hex" minOccurs="0" > <xs:simpleType> <xs:restriction base="hexBinary" > <xs:minLength value="1" /> <xs:maxLength value="32" /> </xs:restriction> </xs:simpleType> </xs:element>
The element is defined by the SSID element.
When profile information is converted to an SSID, the hex element is converted to the SSID (if present) and the name element is ignored . If the hex element is not present, the name element is converted to an SSID using Unicode to ASCII conversion.
When an SSID is stored in a profile, the hex element is always generated. The name element is only generated if the both the ASCII to Unicode conversion of the SSID and the XML profile generation are successful. Some information from the original SSID may be lost when it is converted to a name.
To view a sample profile that uses the hex element, see FIPS Profile Sample.
