Protecting Yourself from the 802.11r Vulnerability

By Mark


Cisco Meraki discovered a critical vulnerability with wireless networks using the 802.11r protocol. 

To avoid this vulnerability, you should disable the 802.11r as follows:

  1. In the Meraki dashboard, navigate to Wireless > Configure > Access Control
  2. Next to 802.11r, you'll see a drop-down menu that reads Enabled. Use the drop-down to select Disabled instead. 

Note for customers who manage their own networks:

While Meraki's latest firmware fixes the 802.11r vulnerability, we recommend disabling 802.11r to ensure compatibility with Apple products.
