The major distinction between the two should not be about cryptography. WPA2-PSK, provided the shared password is of sufficient complexity, is unbreakable given current resources. The use of WPA-EAP-PSK or any WPA Enterprise (i.e. EAP) implementation should not be in an effort to increase the cryptographic strength of a wireless network but to provide other ...


I am assuming when you ask whether WPA-Enterprise is more secure than WPA2, you mean WPA2-PSK (aka WPA-Personal). This is a bit like asking are vegetables healthier than an apple. WPA-Enterprise covers a spectrum of authentication methods (about 100 of them all under the extensible authentication protocol), some very strong, some very weak. WPA2-PSK is a ...
