How to setup router asupport 802.1x security with ASUS router.
The Asus router has a built-in 802.51.2 WiFi security feature that uses the router’s 802.15.4 wireless band.
But it has been widely used by security companies and companies that provide network-attached storage devices to organizations to provide wireless security.
That feature lets a network access device (NASDAQ:NASDAQ) act as a bridge between a wireless router and the network.
For example, a security firm might use the router to send a secure email message or set up a virtual private network (VPN) between the device and the organization’s network.
In this case, the router and a security device share a network port with the organization.
If an intruder is able to access the device remotely, the device can then be used to send the malicious email or set a VPN tunnel between the network and the remote device.
Security experts have criticized the router for not having the ability to disable this security feature.
They say it’s difficult to use a wireless device that can’t connect to the network without enabling it.
“There is a lot of confusion around this,” said Stephen Smith, vice president of security and risk for the cybersecurity company Rapid7.
“It’s an open question what the 802.5.1 security protocol really means.
There’s a lot more people who are not familiar with it.”
Security experts say there’s a strong case to be made that the 802 and 802.21 standards are the best security standards for enterprise networks.
For example: The 802.3af standard is designed to protect networks from network attacks.
It requires that networks use the most secure protocol available to protect against network eavesdropping and other attacks.
