Wireless Profile Parameters

A CIM_IEEE8021xSettings object is used to create a wireless profile. It supports the various fields required by all of the 802.11 profile types.


Intel AMT does not check many of the strings in the profile for more than correct length. These parameters are used to authenticate with external equipment such as a RADIUS server, and must conform to the naming requirements of such devices or services. For example, user names must not have special characters embedded in them (“ / \ [ ] : ; | = , + * ? < >).


Wireless profiles may include the following parameters:

     Profile name

     Profile priority

     Network Name (SSID)

     Security Settings

    Key Management approach: Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) or Robust secure Network (RSN)

    Encryption Algorithm: Temporal Key Integrity Protocol (TKIP) or Counter Mode CBC MAC Protocol (CCMP)

     Authentication: Passphrase or 802.1x profile

     Domain: Length is limited to 40 characters in Intel AMT Release 5.1.10. Starting with Intel AMT Releases 4.2 and 5.2 this field is limited to 128 characters.

     Username: Length is limited to 32 characters. Starting with Intel AMT Releases 4.2 and 5.1.10 this field is limited to 128 characters.

CIM_WiFiPort.PortType contains the 802.11 protocol capability currently in use (802.11a, b, g, or n). The Intel AMT WebUI displays this value.
