Defines values that indicate the type of authentication used by the network.

Syntax


var value = Windows.Networking.Connectivity.NetworkAuthenticationType.none;

Attributes

[Version(0x06020000)]

Members

The NetworkAuthenticationType enumeration has these members.

MemberValueDescription
None | none0

No authentication enabled.

Unknown | unknown1

Authentication method unknown.

Open80211 | open802112

Open authentication over 802.11 wireless. Devices are authenticated and can connect to an access point, but communication with the network requires a matching Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key.

SharedKey80211 | sharedKey802113

Specifies an IEEE 802.11 Shared Key authentication algorithm that requires the use of a pre-shared Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key for the 802.11 authentication.

Wpa | wpa4

Specifies a Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) algorithm. IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through the authentication process.

WpaPsk | wpaPsk5

Specifies a Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) algorithm that uses pre-shared keys (PSK). IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant and authenticator. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through a pre-shared key that is used on both the supplicant and authenticator.

WpaNone | wpaNone6

Wi-Fi Protected Access.

Rsna | rsna7

Specifies an IEEE 802.11i Robust Security Network Association (RSNA) algorithm. IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant, authenticator, and authentication server. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through the authentication process.

RsnaPsk | rsnaPsk8

Specifies an IEEE 802.11i RSNA algorithm that uses PSK. IEEE 802.1X port authorization is performed by the supplicant and authenticator. Cipher keys are dynamically derived through a pre-shared key that is used on both the supplicant and authenticator.

Ihv | ihv9

Specifies an authentication type defined by an independent hardware vendor (IHV).
