AES-CCMP is an approved cryptographic method for FIPS 140-2, which defines the standard for cryptographic modules that protect sensitive but unclassified information. Since 2006, support for AES-CCMP has been a requirement for Wi-Fi® certification, so nearly every Wi-Fi chip supports AES-CCMP in hardware, i.e. on the chip. Very few Wi-Fi products, however, are validated for […]
