Monitoring and suppressing rogue APs

In this example, you learn how to monitor and suppress rogue access points (APs). A rogue AP is an unauthorized AP connected to your wired network (“on-wire”).

Caution

Before suppressing any AP, confirm that rogue suppression is compliant with the applicable laws and regulations of your region.

Monitor > Rogue AP Monitor lists discovered access points. You can mark them as Accepted or Rogue APs. These designations help you track APs. They do not stop anyone from using these APs.

Other APs that are available in the same area might not be rogue. A neighboring AP that has no connection to your network might cause interference but it is not a security threat. In general, only mark unauthorized APs that are on-wire as rogue.
