So WPA is now a priority for prism54 development. Here's where we're at.
Long ago in January Jouni had added some wpa supplicant support into
prism54. It's not until today when I started looking into
I'm glad wpa_supplicant exists :). Interacting with it *is* our missing
link to getting full WPA support (great job Jouni). In wpa_supplicant
cvs I see a base code for driver_prism54.c (empty routines, just providing skeleton).
Well I'll be diving in it now and see where I can get. If anyone else is
interested in helping with WPA support for prism54, working with
wpa_supplicant is the way to go.
I'm curious though -- wpa_supplicant is pretty much userspace. This was
done with good intentions from what I read but before we get dirty
with wpa_supplicant I'm wondering if we should just integrate a lot of
wpa_supplicant into kernel space (specifically wireless tools).
Regardless, as Jouni points out, there is still a framework for WPA that needs
to be written for all linux wireless drivers, whether it's to assist
wpa_supplicant framework or to integrate wpa_supplicant into kernel space.
What's the plan?
