Encryption and authentication

It is best practice to always enable the strongest user authentication and encryption method that your client supports. Fortinet recommends the following security, in order of strongest to weakest:

  • WPA2 - Enterprise 802.1x/EAP - Personal pre-shared key (8-63 characters)
  • WPA - Enterprise 802.1x/EAP - Personal pre-shared key (8-63 characters)
  • WEP128 - 26 Hexadecimal digit key
  • WEP64 - 10 Hexadecimal digit key
  • None - Open system
