Patent Searching and Data

Document Type and Number:
Japanese Patent JP2005524342
Kind Code:
A method and system identifies the particular security protocol required to access each network that a user of a portable device encounters. If a security protocol is required for a network, and the user has the appropriate security key, the system is further configured to identify that key. The system is configured to determine whether a network within range of the device requires encryption, and if so, at what level. If encryption is required, the system accesses a network profile to determine whether the user possesses a key for use in the particular network. The system displays a network identifier, the level of encryption required, and, if available, an identification of the appropriate security key for the identified network. Optionally, the system can be configured to display only those networks that the user can actually access: non-secure networks and secure networks for which an appropriate key is available. If a secure network is selected, the system configures the device to effect the required security, using the identified key.
