Security Information

Make sure that a CA certificate is always specified for all connections that you have configured for 802.1X networks ( Wi-Fi ). The default setting "no specification" must not be left. Otherwise the device will connect to any server with any certificate without further verification. After connecting to the server, user data (user name, password, challenge response) is transmitted for the authentication methods EAP-TTLS (PAP, MSCHAPv2) and PEAP (MSCHAPv2).
