802.11 Authentication Algorithms

The following topics describe the standard 802.11 authentication algorithms supported by the Native 802.11 miniport driver:

Open System Authentication

Shared Key Authentication



In addition, a miniport driver, operating in Extensible Station (ExtSTA) mode, can support proprietary or non-standard authentication algorithms. For more information about how these algorithms are supported, see Extending Support for 802.11 Authentication Algorithms.
