Wireless Network Authentication Failed
What are the causes of wireless network authentication failure issue?
Authentication can be defined as the binding of a system with specific username and password in such a way that the various interactive operations require the inputting of the same. In wireless networks, the process of authentication is very essential as it is open and has no limitations. It is important that the wireless security policies should be used against unauthorized access to important resources. Cracking methods have become much more sophisticated and innovative with wireless networks. Cracking has also become much easier and more accessible with easy to use Windows or Linux based tools being made available on the web. Wireless security is the prevention of unauthorized access or damage to computers using wireless networks. There are a great number of security risks associated with the current wireless protocols and encryption methods due to carelessness and ignorance of the users and corporate IT level.
Following are the description, significance of wireless network authentication and reasons for its failure:
- Reason for failure
The wireless network authentication is the capability to detect a network user through the activation of a set of assigned credentials. In this facility, a username and password is issued to the user as it is dealing with the security matters. Thus, the authorization of the user defines the ability of a specific user to perform certain tasks, such as deleting or creating files, after the authentication process takes place. Finally, it is possible for the account holder to measure and record the consumption of network or system resources.
The significance of wireless network authentication is important to maintain the safety and the security of the network connection. The user can easily access the network and it is very beneficial where the same system or network is used by many people. The assumptions and detections are of no value to judge its consumption and activities, as the user can get the details as the authorization is maintained through a username and password.
The are many possible reasons for the failure of wireless network authentication such as inputting of incorrect credentials, the use of expired credentials, the problems with the network infrastructure etc. If the user unknowingly provides incorrect credentials for a number of times, he locks his account and makes it unable to work with the correct credentials, this problem of failure may occur. The defective functioning of devices such as smartcard, smartcard reader, token etc. can also cause this problem.
