Hi :

     We have a define in the wwd_constants.h ,  if you have install our sdk ,you can have a check.

Theoretically, we can support all the list like below,  if you met issue on your debugging , please report case by project, or report the issue in community,   we can reply to you case by case .

typedef enum

Are all of these implemented too in WICED SDK ?

Hi  :

   This is a define from WICED SDK .

yes , but are they actully implemented for CY43438 ?

Hi  Suresh:

  Different chip has different capabilities,  I only can give you this answer from datasheet,  and if you find problems when doing debug, please raise to us:

Does all mentioned security methods are supported in both STA and AP mode ?

Thanks and Regards,

Suresh

Hi Suresh:

   I will have a test based on my environment,  will update to you later next week.

0 Likes

update my results,  the results is based on 6.2 release with 4343wwcd1 .

WEB is not a secure encryption , not suggest to use it for production.

many routers already removed the support for it.

AP:

WICED_SECURITY_OPEN  //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WEP_PSK   //    not suggest

WICED_SECURITY_WEP_SHARED  //  not suggest

WICED_SECURITY_WPA_TKIP_PSK  //  ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA_AES_PSK   // ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA_MIXED_PSK  //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_AES_PSK  //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_TKIP_PSK  //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_MIXED_PSK //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_FBT_PSK   //ok

STA:

WICED_SECURITY_OPEN  //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WEP_PSK   //    not suggest

WICED_SECURITY_WEP_SHARED  //  not suggest

WICED_SECURITY_WPA_TKIP_PSK  // ok, if AP set to WPA TKIP

WICED_SECURITY_WPA_AES_PSK   // ok, if AP set WPA AES only

WICED_SECURITY_WPA_MIXED_PSK  // ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_TKIP_PSK   // ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_AES_PSK   //ok

WICED_SECURITY_WPA2_MIXED_PSK // ok

Is enterprise security also supported in STA/AP mode?

Thanks and Regards,

Suresh

HI :

 

    We have a released document with SDK , its name is Wiced-Enterprise security user guide.pdf.  

The document has a detailed introduction ,  and 43438 supports Enterprise Types already.

Here's where the document is located in the SDK: /43xxx_Wi-Fi/doc/WICED-Enterprise-Security-User-Guide.pdf
