    The 'R' flag advises that it is a remote AP, this is using a PSK for authentication as opposed to a certificate. The 'c' means the RAP authentication has been performed via a certificate and the 2 flag advises it is using IKE version 2.

    Flags: 1 = 802.1x authenticated AP use EAP-PEAP; 1+ = 802.1x use EST; 1- = 802.1x use factory cert; 2 = Using IKE version 2
    B = Built-in AP; C = Cellular RAP; D = Dirty or no config
    E = Regulatory Domain Mismatch; F = AP failed 802.1x authentication
    G = No such group; I = Inactive; J = USB cert at AP; L = Unlicensed
    M = Mesh node
    N = Duplicate name; P = PPPoe AP; R = Remote AP; R- = Remote AP requires Auth;
    S = Standby-mode AP; U = Unprovisioned; X = Maintenance Mode
    Y = Mesh Recovery
    c = CERT-based RAP; e = Custom EST cert; f = No Spectrum FFT support
    i = Indoor; o = Outdoor; s = LACP striping; u = Custom-Cert RAP; z = Datazone AP
    p = In deep-sleep status
    4 = WiFi Uplink
    r = Power Restricted; T = Thermal ShutDown

    **EDIT**

    Some further reading on the different RAP authentication methods :)
