Used to specify the operating system of the target device.

Parm Name: TargetOS

Option Name Description Note Requires
2 Android Specifies Android as the operating system of the target device.

MX: 4.2+

Wi-Fi Enable/Disable

This is the On-Off switch for the Wi-Fi radio. Note: Wi-Fi must be enabled to change certain other Wi-Fi settings, including those controlled by the Network Actions parameter described later in this document. Attempting to change such settings while the Wi-Fi radio is disabled will return an error in the Result XML. Zebra recommends beginning any profile created to change Wi-Fi settings with a command to Enable the Wi-Fi radio.

Caution: Some Wi-Fi parameters vary from conventions used by other CSPs:

  • The "Enable" and "Disable" settings in the Wi-Fi CSP control whether a user or administrator can "turn on" and "turn off" a feature or capability, or to set its state as "active" or "inactive." Such terms in other CSPs refer to the feature's "Usage" setting, which can prevent access to the feature entirely.
  • The value "0" is used in Wi-Fi parameters to "Disable" a feature, select its default setting or "make no change" or "do nothing" to a setting. In most other CSPs, the "0" value is used to select the "make no change" option.

Parm Name: WiFiAction

2 Disable Turns the Wi-Fi radio Off.

MX: 4.2+

Wi-Fi Sleep Policy

Specifies the state of the Wi-Fi radio when the device enters sleep mode. When Wi-Fi remains enabled during sleep, existing Wi-Fi connections will be maintained as during normal operations. While preferrable for some situations, this mode can significantly reduce battery life.

Android devices by default enter sleep mode after being idle for a specified period of time. While in this mode, apps run in a lower-power state.

Parm Name: WifiSleepPolicy

Option Name Description Note Requires
4 Do not change This (null) value (or the absence of this parm from the XML) causes no change to the current sleep policy on the device; any previously selected setting will be retained.

11 UseRegulatory Permits manual country selection.

MX: 4.2+

12 Country Allows the country to be determined by the router.

MX: 4.2+

Country

Permits selection of country-specific Wi-Fi regulatory settings. Choosing "AUTO" enables 802.11d selection, which configures the device to listen for a country-specific beacon. Using the AUTO setting, the device will not transmit unless it can successfully detect the country and use a frequency that is consistent with the country's Wi-Fi infrastructure. This setting is the least likely to violate country-specific regulations. Countries that do not support the 802.11d infrastructure must be selected manually.

This is the SSID name of the network, which is the primary mechanism used to identify a Wi-Fi network and is used to identify the Wi-Fi network profile to be acted on. Therefore, any Network Action that is used to affect a single profile need to specify the SSID to select the desired profile.

Parm value input rules:

  • String with a minimum size of 1 character and a maximum size of 32 characters

Shown if: The Network Action is any option other than "Do Nothing", "Disable All Existing Networks", or "Remove All Existing Networks"

Parm Name: SSID

Requires:

  • MX: 4.2+

Security Mode

This indicates that the network uses 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol (EAP) security. These networks use authentication to establish the entitlement of a device to join the network and then distribute necessary keys once this entitlement has been verified. Security information pertaining to the EAP type and authentication credentials to be used will need to be supplied to configure these networks.

Open network security is not generally advisable since no security credentials are needed to connect. If an open network is to be used, security can be added through VPNs, data encryption, or other means.

Basic security generally implements a Pre-Shared Key (PSK) or Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) key known to the device and the Wi-Fi infrastructure to encrypt data. These networks are more secure than open networks, but can be compromised if the keys are not handled securely and/or changed periodically. Security information pertaining to the required key must be supplied to configure these networks.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network"

Parm Name: SecurityMode

Option Name Description Note Requires
0 Open Sets the device to use no security.

MX: 4.2+

1 Personal Sets the device to use basic security.

MX: 4.2+

2 Enterprise Sets the device to use advanced security.

MX: 4.2+

WPA Mode

When the selected Security Mode is "Personal" or "Enterprise," the WPA Mode must be specified to determine the key type to use. WPA performs encryption using the Temporal Key Integrity Protocol. A TKIP-compatible key must be specified. WPA2 supports encryption using TKIP (and is therefore backward-compatibile with WPA) and the more secure Advanced Encryption Standard (AES) algorithm. For key selection for this mode, specify either TKIP, AES or auto-select.

Note: WEP is not supported with Enterprise Security Mode.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Personal" or "Enterprise"

Parm Name: WPAMode

3 WPA/WPA2 Enables Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA) standard on the device.

MX: 4.2+

4 WEP Enables Wired Equivalency Privacy (WEP) standard on the device.

MX: 4.2+

Authentication

Used to specify the Authentication Mode used by the network. When a Security Mode of "Enterprise" is selected, an Authentication Mode must be specified to determine how authentication will be performed as part of the 802.1x EAP type used by the network.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Enterprise"

Parm Name: Authentication

Option Name Description Note Requires
1 EAP-TLS This indicates that the network requires authentication using the 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol - Transport Layer Security (EAP-TLS) standard (RFC 5216). EAP-TLS requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a client certificate be specified to prove the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

13 EAP-FAST-GTC This indicates that the network requires authentication using a token generated using a Generic Token Card (GTC) within an anonymous TLS tunnel established using the 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol - Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunneling (EAP-FAST) standard (RFC 5422). EAP-FAST-GTC requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a token value (typically obtained from a physical token device) be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

11 WPA/WPA2 This indicates that the network requires authentication using the Microsoft Challenge Authentication Protocol Version 2 (MSCHAPV2) within an anonymous TLS tunnel established using the 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol - Flexible Authentication via Secure Tunneling (EAP-FAST) standard (RFC 5422). EAP-FAST-MSCHAPV2 requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a password be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

8 EAP-TTLS-PAP This indicates that the network requires authentication using the Password Authentication Protocol (PAP) within a secure TLS tunnel established using the 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol - Tunneled Transport Layer Security (EAP-TTLS) standard (RFC 5281). EAP-TTLS-PAP requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a password be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

6 EAP-TTLS-MSCHAP This indicates that the network requires authentication using the Microsoft Challenge Authentication Protocol (MSCHAP) within a secure TLS tunnel established using the 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol - Tunneled Transport Layer Security (EAP-TTLS) standard (RFC 5281). EAP-TTLS-MSCHAP requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a password be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

7 EAP-TTLS-MSCHAPV2 This indicates that the network requires authentication using the Microsoft Challenge Authentication Protocol Version 2 (MSCHAPV2) within a secure TLS tunnel established using the 802.1x Extensible Authentication Protocol - Tunneled Transport Layer Security (EAP-TTLS) standard (RFC 5281). EAP-TTLS-MSCHAPV2 requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a password be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

4 LEAP This indicates that the network requires authentication using the Lightweight Extensible Authentication Protocol (LEAP) defined by Cisco. LEAP uses a modified version of MSCHAP without a secure tunnel and hence can be easily compromised. LEAP requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a password be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. Unlike standard EAP modes, LEAP does not support an optional certificate to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

2 PEAP-MSCHAPV2 This indicates that the network requires authentication using the Microsoft Challenge Authentication Protocol Version 2 (MSCHAPV2) within a secure TLS tunnel established using the Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol, (PEAP) defined by Cisco Systems, Microsoft, and RSA Security. PEAP-MSCHAPV2 requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a password be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

10 PEAP-GTC This indicates that the network requires authentication using a token generated using a Generic Token Card (GTC) within a secure TLS tunnel established using the Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol, (PEAP) defined by Cisco Systems, Microsoft, and RSA Security. PEAP-GTC requires a device identity to be specified and requires that a token value (typically obtained from a physical token device) be specified to prove the authenticity of that device identity. An optional client certificate may also be specified to verify the authenticity of the device identity. In all EAP modes, an optional certificate may be specified to help verify the identity of the authentication server.

MX: 4.2+

14 PEAP-NONE

MX: 5.0+

Identity

Used to specify the Identity, which can be a user name, email address, ID number or other unique identifier. The Identity combines with a Password to form an authentication credential for gaining access to a network. Authentication is required only when "Enterprise" is the selected Security Mode. Once a credential is accepted by the Authentication Server, the Identity is replaced by an encryption key and has no further significance.

Specifying an empty (length of zero) value (or the absence of this parm from the XML) will fail to set an Identity.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Authentication is "PEAP-NONE"

Parm Name: Identity

Requires:

  • MX: 4.2+

Anonymous Identity

Used to specify an Anonymous Identity for systems that support separate authentication outside of a secure tunnel.

When using an EAP type that has a secure tunnel over which authentication credentials can be delivered, it is sometimes necessary to specify an Identity outside the protections of the tunnel. In these cases, an Anonymous Identity can be sent so as not to disclose the actual Identity, password or other verifying credentials. A separate Anonymous Identity can be used only if the Authentication Server is set up to support it.

If no Anonymous Identity is specified, then the actual Identity will be sent outside the tunnel, if required. This may still be secure since the password and/or other verifying credentials are always sent inside the tunnel (in modes that use a tunnel for secure credential delivery). Using the actual Identity outside the tunnel would therefore risk disclosure of only part of the information needed to authenticate.

Parm value input rules:

  • String with a minimum of 0 characters and a maximum of 64 characters

Note: Specifying an empty (length of zero) value (or the absence of this parm from the XML) will fail to set an Anonymous Identity.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Enterprise" and the Authentication is NOT "EAP-TLS" or "LEAP"

  • MX: 4.2+

Password

Used to specify a Password to be used to connect to a network. This parameter name will change according to the value of ProtectPassword:

If ProtectPassword is false:

  • Parm name: PasswordClear
  • Settable if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Enterprise" and the Authentication is NOT "EAP-TLS"

If Protect Password is true:

  • Parm name: PasswordEncrypted
  • Settable if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Enterprise" and the Authentication is NOT "EAP-TLS"

Parm value input rules:

  • String with a minimum of 0 characters and a maximum of 64 characters

Note: The encryption process for this parameter value is currently undocumented, and the key required to encrypt is unpublished. Since there is currently no way to store an encrypted, server-supplied password within an XML file, mobile device management (MDM) systems cannot use an encrypted password.

Parm Name: PasswordClear, PasswordEncrypted

Requires:

  • MX: 4.2+

Protect Password

Controls whether passwords will be stored as encrypted or clear text while in transit to the device. Passwords specified in Profile Manager are embedded within an XML file and sent to the device for consumption as part of a configuration. Encrypting a Password using this parameter might be desirable as a security measure to prevent extraction and exploitation in case the XML is intercepted while in transit.

Passwords are stored in clear text on the device unless specifically encrypted using the Protect Password Encryption parameter. Encrypted and clear-text Passwords are stored in a protected area on the device that is inaccessible to users and unauthorized applications.

The Password combines with an Identity to form an authentication credential for gaining access to a network. Authentication is required only when "Enterprise" is the selected Security Mode. All authentication types require a Password except EAP-TLS, which uses a client certificate.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Enterprise" and the Authentication is NOT "EAP-TLS"

Parm Name: ProtectPassword

Requires:

  • MX: 4.2+

Password Protect Encryption

Controls whether the Wi-Fi Password stored on the device is encrypted, thereby preventing access to the clear-text Password on the device by any application or malicious exploit.

Note: Enabling this feature prevents the Google Mobile Service (GMS) backup service from successfully restoring Wi-Fi settings to a device, and might effect the operation other device backup systems.

The Password combines with an Identity to form an authentication credential for gaining access to a network. Authentication is required only when "Enterprise" is the selected Security Mode. All authentication types require a Password except EAP-TLS, which uses a client certificate.

Optional Server Certificate Name

Optional parameter that allows the name of a certificate alias to be used to verify the server.

Parm value input rules:

  • String from 0-64 characters

Notes:

  • When Security Mode is "Enterprise," the device will not need to authenticate to an Authentication Server using the defined Authentication type. This will involve sending potentially sensitive authentication credentials to the Authentication Server. Zebra does not recommended this unless the authenticity of the Authentication Server can be verified, for example, ensuring it is not attempting to carry out a "man in the middle" attack.

  • The device contacts and challenges the Authentication Server to assert and prove its Identity through the use of a server certificate. The device must be able to establish the validity of that certificate and must trust the chain of authority of the issuer of that certificate. This would all occur whether or not a Server Certificate Name is specified.

  • By default, a certificate asserted by an Authentication Server will be trusted if it can be verified to have been issued by any trusted certificate authority. If a Server Certificate Name is supplied, the certificate asserted by an Authentication Server will be trusted only if it is verified to have been issued by that specific trusted certificate authority. This increases the security by preventing the use of certificates issued by authorities that are not trusted to issue certificates to authentication servers.

  • Specifying an empty (length of zero) value (or the absence of this parm from the XML) will fail to set the Optional Server Certificate.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Enterprise" and the Authentication is "EAP-TLS" or "PEAP-MSCHAPV2" or "EAP-TTLS-MSCHAP" or "EAP-FAST-MSCHAPV2" or "EAP-TTLS-PAP" or "PEAP-GTC" or "EAP-FAST-MSCHAPV2" or "EAP-FAST-GTC" or "PEAP-NONE"

Parm Name: OptionalServerCertificate

Parm Name: OptionalServerCertificate

Requires:

  • MX: 4.2+

Optional Client Certificate Name

Optional parameter that allows the name of a client certificate alias to be used to join a network. When Authenticating with EAP types other than EAP-TLS (which would not require a client certificate), a client is still allowed. In this case, the client certificate will be used to authenticate the device to the authentication server as part of the establishment of the secure tunnel over which further authentication credentials will be delivered. The client certificate does not need to be unique, even if the authentication credentials are. The use of a client certificate can introduce an additional level of protection by requiring a device to have a valid client certificate as well as valid authentication credentials. The client certificate serves as a first-pass filter.

Parm value input rules:

  • String with a minimum of 0 characters and a maximum of 64 characters

Note: Specifying an empty (length of zero) value (or the absence of this parm from the XML) will fail to set an Optional Server Certificate.

MX: 4.2+

2 WEP-104 Selects use of the Wireless Equivalency Privacy (WEP) standard with a key size of 104 bits.

MX: 4.2+

Key Type

Used to specify the type of encryption key to be used by the network. A key is specified only when the Security Mode is "Personal" since the "Open" Security Mode does not use encryption and the "Enterprise" Security Mode distributes keys automatically after Authentication.

An encryption key can be specified using either of these methods:

  • A hexadecimal value (the key itself)
  • A passphrase used to generate a key using a pre-defined algorithm

The selected method usually depends on the configuration of the Wi-Fi network because the key must be shared between the Wi-Fi infrastructure and the client. Therefore, they must use a common method to specify the key.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Personal"

Parm Name: KeyType

Option Name Description Note Requires
HexKey Hex Key The key used by the network to perform encryption will be specified.

MX: 4.2+

Passphrase Passphrase A passphrase derived from the specified key and used by the network to perform encryption.

MX: 4.2+

Protect Key

Enables encryption of the Key. The Key (or the Passphrase used to generate a Key) is generally considered sensitive information since having the Key for a network grants access to that network. Since the Key or Passphrase must be embedded within the XML, it is often desirable to encrypt the Key or Passphrase so it cannot be extracted and exploited if the XML is intercepted. The specified WPA Mode and the Key Type determine what type of Key or Passphrase must used. The value selected for the ProtectKey parameter deterimes whether the Key or Passphrase will be specified as clear or encrypted text.

Shown if: The Network Action is "Add a New Network" and the Security Mode is "Personal"

Parm Name: KeyType

Requires:

  • MX: 4.2+

Passphrase

Controls whether the Key will be encrypted. When the Key Type is Passphrase, then the specified Passphrase will be used to generate the Key. The required Passphrase will vary depending on the WPA Mode specified (WEP or WPA Passphrase).

Note: Currently, the parm value encryption process is not documented and the key that is needed to encrypt is not published. Therefore, an MDM cannot currently use encrypted Keys or Passphrases since there is no way to store an encrypted, server-supplied password in XML file.
