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.

Remarks

Although the hex and name elements are optional, at least one hex or name element must appear as a child of 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.

Examples

To view a sample profile that uses the hex element, see FIPS Profile Sample.
