I'm working on a script to tell how secure a wifi connection is. Unfortunately I've become stuck pretty early trying to decode the output of the scan - can anyone help me understand what this is actually telling me?
From some quick googles', I suspect HT means High Throughput. My searches on High Throughput seem to be redirecting me to IEEE standards (802.11n/ac) that seem to use it but don't explicitly explain what it is; so I'm lost on what it does and if it affects security
uneducated guess, CC = Country Code (I'm from Canada so CA seems to cover that).
I understand the WPA2 with AES encryption is what I want to see; but when I do a scan I'm getting cases where the security protocol shows both WPA2 and WPA, or AES and TKIP. Do the routers actually use both?
the screen shot was output from mac terminal command 'airport -s'
