What is TSN / RSN


I found a nice page about introduction of 802.1x.

http://tldp.org/HOWTO/8021X-HOWTO/intro.html

Quotes of that page :

WPA is not the long term solution. To get a Robust Secure Network (RSN), the hardware must support and use CCMP. RSN is basically CCMP + 802.1X.

RSN, which uses TKIP instead of CCMP, is also called Transition Security Network (TSN). RSN may also be called WPA2, so that the market don’t get confused.

Basically:

TSN = TKIP + 802.1X = WPA(1)

RSN = CCMP + 802.1X = WPA2
