Device Provisioning Protocol
Device Provisioning Protocol (DPP Device Provisioning Protocol. DPP is a provisioning protocol certified by the Wi-Fi Alliance that allows onboarding IoT devices easily, securely, and on a large scale.) allows onboarding IoT Internet of Things. IoT refers to the internetworking of devices that are embedded with electronics, software, sensors, and network connectivity features allowing data exchange over the Internet. devices easily, securely, and on a large scale.
DPP Network Access
Configure the DPP connectors-based network access as a new key management option. Configure the DPP network access at the security level when creating a new network. DPP automatically sets cloud authentication as the authentication server.
The following key management options are available for DPP connectors-based network access:
DPP supports both overlay and underlay.
- Use DPP only key management when using personal security level.
DPP does not define AKM for 802.11r 802.11r is an IEEE standard for enabling seamless BSS transitions in a WLAN. 802.11r standard is also referred to as Fast BSS transition. clients. For an SSID Service Set Identifier. SSID is a name given to a WLAN and is used by the client to access a WLAN network. with DPP-only key management, do not enable 802.11r.
- Use DPP + WPA2 Wi-Fi Protected Access 2. WPA2 is a certification program maintained by IEEE that oversees standards for security over wireless networks. WPA2 supports IEEE 802.1X/EAP authentication or PSK technology, but includes advanced encryption mechanism using CCMP that is referred to as AES. dot1x key management when using WPA2 dot1x key management and enable DPP AKM in the SSID.
- Use DPP + WPA2 PSK Pre-shared key. A unique shared secret that was previously shared between two parties by using a secure channel. This is used with WPA security, which requires the owner of a network to provide a passphrase to users for network access. key management when using WPA2 PSK key management and enable DPP AKM in the SSID.
