Wi-Fi Protected Access for protection and automation

SC B5 commissioned this study to survey applications using Wi-Fi in protection and automation schemes, and the mitigation of security vulnerabilities offered by IEEE 802.11i on system reliability and performance. This paper summarizes the findings of the survey, as well as the results of analysis that suggests specific design requirements and security levels needed for Wi-Fi protected access. The security levels are prioritized in terms of their mitigation of risk related to critical mission protection and automation functions. Specific mechanisms needed to adequately implement Wi-Fi are identified and are related to existing or emerging standards.
