| This check only applies to access points that do not use an AAA (RADIUS) server for authentication services. In most cases, this means the access point is configured for WPA2/WPA3 (Personal), which relies on password authentication, and not WPA2/WPA3 (Enterprise), which uses a AAA server to authenticate each user based on that user's authentication credentials. |
Verify the client authentication password has been set on the access point with the following settings:
- 15 characters or more
- The authentication password selected use at least two of each of the following: uppercase letter, lowercase letter, number, and special character.
The procedure for verifying these settings varies between AP models. Have the SA show the settings in the AP management console.
If the WLAN client password is not configured for at least a 15-character length and a complexity with at least two each of uppercase letters, lowercase letters, numbers, and special characters, this is a finding.
