CompTIA Security+ Question A-24

A security administrator wishes to increase the security of the wireless network. Which of the following BEST addresses this concern?

A. Change the encryption from TKIP-based to CCMP-based.
B. Set all nearby access points to operate on the same channel.
C. Configure the access point to use WEP instead of WPA2.
D. Enable all access points to broadcast their SSIDs.

Answer: A

CCMP makes use of 128-bit AES encryption with a 48-bit initialization vector. This initialization vector makes cracking a bit more difficult.
