    If a client device has connected to the controller using encryption, the device will be marked as a valid station, and it is assumed that it is one of your devices.  Protect Valid Station could prevent those clients from associating to any other access points besides yours, when they are within range of your wifi.  To see the clients in the Valid Station list, type "

    I would only do that with your own clients.  The FCC in the United States has ruled that there is a limit to what IDS functions you can do to clients that are not your own.  It is a very murky legal situation, so I would not do anything to any clients outside of your own.  http://community.arubanetworks.com/t5/Wireless-Access/The-FCC-has-clarified-their-stance-on-wireless-containment-but/m-p/226342#M46143
