Yes, both of those and in addition, proto=WPA. In other words, the full
list would be ssid, key_mgmt, pairwise, group, and proto. Other
parameters, like psk, are of course also needed based on the selected
key management mechanism.

When using ap_scan=1, wpa_supplicant determines these automatically, but
for ap_scan=2, scan results are not available for this. Some drivers,
like ndiswrapper, need to get matching security policy for association
to succeed.
