Wi-Fi Protected Setup
Wi-Fi Protected Setup是一项可选认证项目，以专为简化家庭和小型办公环境中安全Wi-Fi网络设置的技术为基础。Wi-Fi Protected Setup支持大多数用户所熟悉的方式（按下按钮、输入PIN码，或者使用NFC）来配置网络，启用安全功能。
正如所有的Wi-Fi CERTIFIED产品一样，Wi-Fi Protected Setup产品拥有WPA2带来的各种行业标准安全功能。Wi-Fi Protected Setup为用户提供了一种更简易的Wi-Fi安全连接设置方法，包括设备互联以及网络配置。后期，也可以轻松地将其它设备添加到Wi-Fi Protected Setup网络中。
随着Wi-Fi 技术连接的设备越来越多，拥有一种更简易、规范的网络配置方法以及安全支持是至关重要的。凭借Wi-Fi Protected Setup即可简易地将设备添加到网络中，因而Wi-Fi用户可以自由地选择各种产品类型和品牌。

- Are Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products protected by security?
As of July 1, 2020, all new Wi-Fi CERTIFIED devices require WPA3. The only way to be sure that a product meets the latest security standards is to purchase only Wi-Fi CERTIFIED products.
- How does Wi-Fi Alliance help ensure product compatibility and a good user experience for certified products?
Compatibility and quality are achieved through testing of Wi-Fi products. Consumers should always look for the Wi-Fi CERTIFIED logo to ensure the best user experience possible.
- How does Wi-Fi Protected Setup work?
There are two primary approaches to network setup within Wi-Fi Protected Setup: push-button and PIN entry. PIN entry is mandatory in all Wi-Fi Protected Setup devices, while push-button is optional and may also be found in some devices.
Push-button configuration (PBC): in some Wi-Fi Protected Setup networks, the user may connect multiple devices to the network and enable data encryption by pushing a button. The access point/wireless router will have a physical button, and other devices may have a physical or software-based button. Users should be aware that during the two-minute setup period which follows the push of the button, unintended devices could join the network if they are in range.
PIN entry: in all Wi-Fi Protected Setup networks, a unique PIN (Personal Identification Number) will be required for each device to join the network. A fixed PIN label or sticker may be placed on a device, or a dynamic PIN can be generated and shown on the device's display (e.g., a TV screen or monitor). The PIN is used to make sure the intended device is added to the network being set up and will help to avoid accidental or malicious attempts to add unintended devices to the network.
A registrar device (which could be an Access Point/wireless router, PC television, or other device) will detect when a new Wi-Fi device is in range, and prompt the user to enter the PIN, if he or she wishes to add the new device to the network. In this mode, Wi-Fi Protected Setup network encrypts data and authenticates each device on the network. The PIN entry method is supported in all devices.
