The WPA2 standard defines three entities:
- STA: the networking station, e.g. pc
- AP: access point
- AS: authentication server
As far as I understand, when you buy a regular access point, there is a built-in authentication server.
My book says that in general (not mentioning built-in AS) RADIUS is most often used. Is RADIUS the standard authentication method in most APs?
I was told once that my school was considered changing to RADIUS, but if RADIUS is in every AP, what was meant by that?
