Which of the following encryption techniques will BEST protect a wireless network from a man-inthe-middle attack?

A.
128-bit wired equivalent privacy (WEP)

B.
MAC-basedpre-sharedkey(PSK)

C.
Randomly generated pre-shared key (PSKJ

D.
Alphanumeric service set identifier (SSID)

Explanation:
A randomly generated PSK is stronger than a MAC-based PSK, because the MAC address of a
computer is fixed and often accessible. WEP has been shown to be a very weak encryption
technique and can be cracked within minutes. The SSID is broadcast on the wireless network in
plaintext.
