  • transmitting identification information to the access point;

    providing and transmitting a password via an interface to an authenticated device of a system or network external to the access point, having an authenticating function, whereby the identification information is directly assigned to the device authenticated in the external system or network and access to data of the authenticated device is available at a location of the station or of the access point;

    transferring the password sent to the authenticated device from the authenticated device to the station;

    based on the password received at the station, the station transmitting an attempted copy of the password to the access point;
