nonBroadcast (SSIDConfig) Element

The nonBroadcast (SSIDConfig) element indicates whether to connect to a hidden network. If a network does not broadcast its SSID, then it is known as a hidden network. If multiple SSIDs are set within the profile, they must all have the same nonBroadcast value.

If connectionType is set to ESS, this value can be either "true" or "false". If this element is not present, the default value is "false".

If connectionType is set to IBSS, this value must be "false". If this element is not present, the default value is "false".
