    Wi-Fi Alliance Overview

    Non-profit international association of more than 300 membercompanies and growing (www.wi-fi.org); 10 independent authorized

    test labs in 6 countries Industry/thought leader and worldwide certification body for WLAN

    technology

    Driving collaboration within the ecosystem: manufacturers, standard

    bodies, regulators, service providers, and carriers Broad member representation across the convergence ecosystem:

    silicon, manufacturers, applications, and carriers

    Wi-Fi CERTIFIED brings interoperability and better user experience to

    WLAN technology; more than 3,000 products certified to date

    Consumers love Wi-Fi, but they want it

    to be easier to set up and protect

    Strong security is a requirement on Wi-Fi CERTIFIED devices, butenabling it has up to now been somewhat difficult

    2 in 5 consumers still have not activated the security on their Wi-Finetwork*

    44% of consumers described activating security on a Wi-Fi networkas moderately to very difficult**

    Most (83%) of people think usingsomeone elses Wi-Fi networkwithout their knowledge is stealing,but about half of people admit that

    they have done so***

    Introducing Wi-Fi Protected Setup:

    Easing setup in home and small office networks

    Wi-Fi Protected Setup is anoptional certification program

    designed to ease set up ofsecurity-enabled Wi-Finetworks in the home andsmall office environment

    This new optional certificationprogram provides two easy-to-use methods to configure a network:

    Push-Button Configuration

    PIN / numeric code

    WFA Authorized Test Labs are taking orders and the first productswill enter the market during Q1 2007

    Wi-Fi Protected Setup has broad industry

    support across the value chain

    This program is based upon the firstspecification developed solely by WFAmember companies

    Broad support for a consistent,industry-wide solution led to a largeand active task group

    Silicon, devices, software, andservice providers all participated

    The Wi-Fi Simple Config Specificationdetails Wi-Fi protected setup and ispublicly available at www.wi-fi.org

    Later, the program will support Near-Field Communication and USB FlashDrive methods for activation

    How Wi-Fi Protected Setup works

    When a consumer brings home a newWi-Fi CERTIFIED Wi-Fi Protected Setup

    device and turns it on, the networkdetects its presence automatically

    The user is prompted to either enter aPIN or push the button

    The network name and encryption

    information are securely transferred tothe device

    A variety of devices can support Wi-FiProtected Setup, from PCs and routers tocameras and phones

    New client devices can easily join anexisting Wi-Fi Protected Setup network

    Outlining PIN and Push Button methods

    PIN Configuration:

    8-digit PIN required for each

    device on the network PIN can be fixed or dynamic,

    but is never user-generated somore secure

    PIN is entered into Registrar via

    a graphical user interface

    Registrar is an entity on thenetwork that issues and revokescredentials

    WPA or WPA2 security isenabled

    Push-button Configuration:

    User pushes button on AP and

    client device(s) Especially useful for devices

    without a PC-type of interface

    Final result is the same as PINmethod: WPA or WPA2 security

    is enabled

    Coming later this year: Near FieldCommunication method, in which auser touches a token or card to a

    device. NFC support is expected tobe added in 1H 2007

    Look for a new Wi-Fi Protected Setup

    visual identifier to find products

    The Visual Identifier will appear on packaging, on products, and insoftware interfaces for enabling Wi-Fi Protected Setup

    Consumers should look for products that are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED forWi-Fi Protected Setup as a mark of interoperability and ease of use
