| All network traffic sent between your computer and the wireless access point is sent unencrypted. This means that other computers and devices listening near by are able to see the websites you visit, search terms you type into Google, and any other traffic that is not explicitly encrypted.
| The MIT SECURE wireless networks require authentication with your MIT email username and password and encrypt all of your wireless network traffic. The security method is WPA2 Enterprise with PEAP (MSCHAPv2) authentication and TLS encryption.
The MIT GUEST network is a limited access wireless network provided for visitors at MIT. This network is not intended for long-term use and has limited access to the MIT network and the internet. The MIT GUEST network is separated from the rest of the MIT network with a firewall and network address translation (NAT). This limits the services that will work over the MIT GUEST network. For instance: printing to Athena cluster printers over TCP/IP port 631 (CUPS) will not work.
