A funny thought that I have had since I connected my girlfriends Wii to my wireless guest network, was that the Wii described my guest WLAN as a “Secure access point” (which is protected by WPA-PSK). How can the Wii present the networks security status by looking on what encryption that is enabled? Regardless of what encryption or authentication requirements you have for your WLAN, they won’t help you from ARP-spoofs for example (when you are connected) which is within the boundary of the networks security.
Furthermore, for me, it is impossible to make a access point secure using preshared keys. A “secure WLAN” requires PKI, at least for server verifications using PEAP-TLS, but preferably with client authentication using certificates by EAP-TLS (just like my “production” WLAN ).
Of course, I understand that a Wii console is made for home environments. But the main question is still very interesting and remains unanswered;
What is a secure access point?
