Introducing Samsung WLAN 4.7.7
Samsung is pleased to announce the release of WLAN 4.7.7 software for the Access Point Controller (APC), Access Points (AP) and Wireless Enterprise Manager (WEM). With the release of 4.7.7 Samsung provides updated security features and the ability for the customer to use their own certificates for Guest access.
WLAN 4.7.7 Product Features
The following Product Features are supported with the new WLAN 4.7.7 software:
- Customer Installed Certificates
With updates to the Administration GUI the system allows the user to upload the Certificate file, Private Key and Chain certificate file into the Controller. This now provides another way to keep your connection secure and up to date using your own public or private certificates on the system.
Samsung continues to provide security updates to new software releases to close any potential vulnerability in the system. Open SSH has been updated to version 7.5
PCI-DSS security updates have been applied to remove any security vulnerabilities. Contact Samsung support for information you need about security.
- ACL/VLAN override in open access WLAN
The APC allows the administrator to override the current setting of the Access Control List or VLAN being used on the system.
- Station IP address in location tracking information
The APC now adds the ability to see the IP address of the Station connected to the Access point.
- TKIP/CCMP is added to the encryption option of WPA+WPA2 security
The APC has updated the encryption options for station connection to the Access Points. TKIP/CCMP protocols have been added to allow more choices and enhanced security, depending on the supported clients’ use of these features.
- Extend the number of IP caches for Named ACL (16->512)
The APC can now handle up to 512 Access Controls per Identified Names under ACL Lists. Either IP ACL or IPv6 ACL menus.
When this feature is enabled, stations in the same SSID can be setup to prohibit communicating directly each other.
- Service protocol configuration for captive portal
If https server is enabled, APC used https for web authentication and could run into a certificate error. APC software has been modified so that APC can select web service protocol from http and https when web authentication is used.
- APC list count extension (WEC8050: 2->128, WEC8500: 12->128)
The APC now allows up to 128 Access Control Lists per Controller. This update is for both 8050 and 8500 Controller.
- MAC authentication in survival mode AP (AP Family B/C/D/F)
When the Access Points enter survivable mode and cannot connect to a Controller they now have the ability to support authentication of the device using the MAC address.
- Detection exception with OUI and OUI type in vendor specific element (WIPS sensor)
In the Intrusion section of the APC the system can now provide an exception rule against a specific Organizationally Unique Identifier
