Trusted AP Policies on a Wireless LAN Controller
Source: Cisco Systems
Trusted AP policies are a security features in the controller that are designed to be used in scenarios where customers have a parallel autonomous AP network along with the controller. In that scenario, the autonomous AP can be marked as the trusted AP on the controller, and the user can define policies for these trusted APs (which should use only WEP or WPA, SSID, short preamble, and so on). If any of these AP fails to meet these policies, the controller raises an alarm to the network management device (Wireless Control System) that states a trusted AP violated a configured policy.
