Login Credential procedure is different for Enterprises

 In Enterprises Wi-Fi

The standard for passing over a network is IEEE 802.1x. In this authentication framework, the user who wants to be authenticated is the supplicant. The RADIUS (remote authentication dial-in user service) server doing the authentication is the authentication server, and the device at the AP, such as a laptop or smartphone, is the authenticator.

Users are assigned login credentials to enter when connecting to the network; they will receive a unique id and password and will not be able to see the actual encryption keys, and these keys aren’t stored on the device. This protects the wireless network against terminated employees or lost devices. The authentication is port-based so that when a user attempts to connect to the network, communication is allowed through a virtual port for the transfer of login credentials. If authentication is successful, encryption keys are securely passed out and the user receives full access.
