Wireless LAN Access System

This is the approved Protection Profile for Wireless LAN Access.  The Target of Evaluation (TOE) defined in this protection Profile (PP) is used  for Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) Access Systems for the protection of sensitive but unclassified data on a wireless network. This PP details the policies, assumptions, threats, security objectives, security functional requirements, and security assurance requirements for the WLAN and its supporting environment.

Usage Senario

The TOE for the WLAN Access System contributes to a secure wireless access solution for providing secure communication between a user (wireless client) and a wired network (e.g., enterprise network) by providing centralized management functions, policy control, and cryptographic services to support administration, authentication, encryption, and the protection and handling of data in transit.

Threat Addressed

Threats addressed by the TOE are listed in the Threat section of the PP.  Examples include, help mitigate denial of service (DoS) attacks and preventing resource exhaustion.
