protected (sharedKey) Element
The protected (sharedKey) element indicates whether a shared key is encrypted.
<xs:element name="protected" type="boolean" />
The element is defined by the sharedKey element.
For Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008, protected always has a value of TRUE if the profile was retrieved from the profile store (for example, by calling WlanGetProfile).
For profiles intended for use on Windows XP with Service Pack 3 (SP3) or Wireless LAN API for Windows XP with Service Pack 2 (SP2), protected must have a value of FALSE.
To view sample profiles that use the protected element, see Wireless Profile Samples.
