Assignment: Implementation of Authentication ProcessLearning Objectives and OutcomesDesign and document a secure wireless local area network (WLAN) authenticationprocess.Assignment RequirementsOther than the Internet, probably no aspect of technology will have more impact on theclassroom than the wireless local area network (WLAN), which may soon become asindispensable to the educational mission as chalkboards and textbooks. In the 21st century,technological literacy will be a primary determinant of whether a student succeeds or failslater in life. The ability to access and work with a wide range of information technology (IT)applications will be critical to ensuring this literacy. The benefits of a pervasive wirelessfidelity (Wi-Fi) deployment in primary and secondary education include:Infrastructure Flexibility: School districts’ learning technology needs can be asunpredictable as class sizes. A WLAN can be quickly rolled out virtually anywhere,without the need for extensive retrofitting of existing infrastructure.Speed: Classroom productivity is measured in terms of how much can be taught in ashort period of time. Students can access a WLAN-enabled learning environment in amatter of seconds, without special connections, transmission control protocol/Internetprotocol (TCP/IP) changes, or a tangle of cables. Teachers can focus on teaching andstudents can focus on learning.Resource Mobility: A WLAN allows technology-learning tools such as laptops to bemoved to wherever students are, rather than vice-versa. This makes the concentration ofmobile computing resources possible in a single classroom while maximizing hardwareutilization and a return on the investment.Deploying WLAN in the classroom can bring enormous benefits, but there are some uniquechallenges to this environment. For a start, school IT staff is often stretched thin by thesupport demands of a large numbers of users, so the WLAN solution cannot require time-
