I am designing an Aerohive WLAN for a municipal client. Aside from their inherent obsession with cost, they are asking some pointed questions about security. One question from their IT team was about the security of cooperative control protocols and "how someone could hack into their network and create havoc". This was the only question I couldn't answer definitively and told them I would get back to them. So my question is: How is the control and management traffic encrypted ( I presumed it was) on the LAN and WLAN? I cannot find ANYTHING in the Aerohive literature or on the web. Many thanks in advance.
