I am new and need help with some basic concepts

So I’m trying to understand wireless security protocols just conceptually. Can you guys confirm, elaborate, or correct my understanding, thankyou:

There are 3 Wireless security cryptographic protocols: WEP, WPA, WPA2

There are 3 modes the security protocol can operate in: Open, PSK, Enterprise (uses RADIUS)

There are 2/3 primary encryption protocols used with the security protocols: TKIP, CCMP (uses AES)

Then there are 6 authentication protocols for wireless networks: EAP, EAP-FAST, PEAP, EAP-TLS, EAP Tunneled TLS, RADIUS

and all WPA2 devices require AES. Which means saying WPA2-AES doesn’t mean a whole lot. Most of the time, what follows WPA2-xxx, the xxx will represent an authentication protocol.
