Since communication via the wireless LAN function is established by radio waves, the wireless signal may be susceptible to interception. To protect wireless communication, this player supports various security functions. Be sure to correctly configure the security settings in accordance with your network environment. No Security Although you can easily make settings, anyone can intercept wireless communication or intrude into your wireless network, even without any sophisticated tools. Keep in mind that there is a risk of unauthorized access or interception of data. WEP WEP applies security to communications to prevent outsiders from intercepting communications or intruding into your wireless network. WEP is a legacy security technology that enables older devices, which do not support TKIP/AES, to be connected. WPA-PSK (TKIP), WPA2-PSK (TKIP) TKIP is a security technology developed to correct for the deficiencies of WEP. TKIP assures a higher security level than WEP. WPA-PSK (AES), WPA2-PSK (AES) AES is a security technology that uses an advanced security method that is distinct from WEP and TKIP. AES assures a higher security level than WEP or TKIP.
