This PP-Module is written to address the situation when network packets cross the boundary between a wired private network and a wireless client via a WLAN Access System.  The WLAN Access System provides secure communication between a user (wireless client) and a wired (trusted) network by supporting security functions such as administration, authentication, encryption, and the protection and handling of data in transit.  To protect the data in-transit from disclosure and modification, a WLAN Access System is used to establish secure communications.  The WLAN Access System provides one end of the secure cryptographic tunnel and performs encryption and decryption of network packets in accordance with a WLAN Access System security policy negotiated with its authenticated wireless client.  It supports multiple simultaneous wireless connections and is capable of establishing and terminating multiple cryptographic tunnels to and from those peers.

The proper installation, configuration, and administration of the WLAN Access System are critical to its correct operation.
