Note: Aerohive provides a choice of two types of PPSK (Private Pre-Shared Key) users: Cloud PPSK users and Local PPSK users. The key difference between the two types is where they are stored. Cloud PPSK users are stored in Aerohive hosted servers within the HiveManager cloud platform or for an on-premises solution—within the HiveManager virtual appliance. Local PPSK users are stored locally on Aerohive APs.
