Executive Summary

In wireless networks data are transferred via radio in the air. As a consequence efficient security measures are especially important to protect these data. Print documents often contain confidential and sensitive data. This is why network printers should be equipped for a safe connection to wireless LAN. WLAN print servers should naturally support the latest WLAN encryption standards as well as safe methods of authentication (IEEE 802.1X). Depending on the security demands of a network it is possible to implement further security measures such as print data encryption via TLS/SSL. This paper provides an overview of the most important protective measures for network printing in a WLAN and explains how they function.
