    I need some help with the meaning of some possibly poorly written sentence:

    en.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEEE_802.11i-2004
    "The authentication process leaves two considerations: the access point (AP) still needs to authenticate itself to the client station (STA), and keys to encrypt the traffic need to be derived."

    What does "leave" mean in this context? Would "leaves two considerations to deal with" be better?

    Not necessarily. The word "leaves" means exactly that.

    See here: leaving - definition of leaving by the Free Online Dictionary, Thesaurus and Encyclopedia.

    not a teacher

    "leaves two considerations" = leaves two matters/factors/aspects to be considered.
    So you don't need to say that they are to be "considered" and "dealt with".
