What is an SSID?

It's a WiFi encryption standard.

It's the password used to decrypt WEP, WPA or WPA2 in a WiFi broadcast.

An SSID is a name (such as “Kim's Network”) that's given to a WiFi signal, so that it can't be confused with other WiFi signals in the same area.

In a WiFi-connected device, it's a substitute for a MAC address.
