AEGIS SecureConnect (or simply ‘AEGIS’) is the former name of a network authentication system used in IEEE 802.1X networks.[1] It was developed by Meetinghouse Data Communications, Inc.; the system was renamed "Cisco Secure Services Client" when Meetinghouse was acquired by Cisco Systems.[2] The AEGIS Protocol is an 802.1X “Supplicant” (i.e. handles authentication for wired and wireless networks, such as those that use WPA-PSK, WPA-Radius, or Certificate-based authentication), and is commonly installed along with a Network Interface Card’s (NIC) drivers.
