In this exercise, you will learn how to configure a security standard called WPA2 with Pre-Shared Key (PSK) to secure a WLAN SSID.
This exercise covers the following:

Configuring WPA2 with PSK
Consider the figure shown below. There is a WLAN here called Practice-Labs. Once you click on its WLAN ID, five tabs would appear. Under the security and Layer 2 tab, you can configure layer 2 security type, PSK key, and other security settings.
Note: Ciscos dcloud is available on https://dcloud-cms.cisco.com/demo_news/cisco-wireless-lan-controller-code-release-8-1-11-3-best-practices-v1-sandbox. The demo is available to only Cisco employees and registered partners.

WPA +WAP2 is selected as layer 2 security. You will need to enable PSK under Authentication key management. You would then have to enter a pre-shared key, as shown in the figure below.
