The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series adheres to the most stringent security standards in the industry. The 1240AG Series is on the FIPS 140-2 Pre-Validation List. FIPS 140-2 is administered by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) which dictates and validates the level of security for Federal agencies that use cryptographic-based security systems to protect sensitive electronic information. In addition it meets the Common Criteria standards. The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series is part of the award-winning Cisco Wireless Security Suite, which supports 802.11i, Wi-Fi Protected Access 2 (WPA2), WPA, and numerous Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) types. WPA and WPA2 are the Wi-Fi Alliance certifications for interoperable, standards-based WLAN security. These certifications support IEEE 802.1X for user-based authentication, Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) for WPA encryption, and Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) for WPA2 encryption. These certifications help to ensure interoperability between Wi-Fi-certified WLAN devices from different manufacturers. The Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series hardware-accelerated AES encryption supports enterprise-class, government-grade secure encryption over the WLAN without compromising performance. IEEE 802.1X authentication helps to ensure that only authorized users are allowed on the network. Backward compatibility and support for WPA client devices running TKIP, the RC4 encryption algorithm is also supported by the Cisco Aironet 1240AG Series.
