inSSIDer shows my wireless network as RSNA-CCMP. The settings on the wireless router (Linksys E2000) do not at all seem to suggest an "RSNA" security option. The security filtering options in inSSIDer have both a WPA2-CCMP and RSNA-CCMP available.

What is the difference between these?

The RSNA-CCMP filter is an accidental left-over from when I wrote the filtering system. It is exactly the same as the WPA2-CCMP filter. :D

  • By that, I take it you're the original programmer for inssider? Feel free to point that out :)

    Yes, I wrote most of inSSIDer 2. :)

From what I can gather, for practical purposes these are the same thing, just different name. RSNA stands for Robust Security Network Assocation, which is part of the 802.11i spec (per this article on Wikipedia )

  • That's what I figured, but I'm trying to understand why these would be two separate things in inSSIDer.
