I'm interested in using 802.11i in IBSS mode as well. I tried WPA-None
on Linux and got nowhere and probably most people here. I've seen that
WPA-None has been removed in the latest Windows SP2 patch (the patch
needed to get WPA2 working). As such, i agree with Jouni that there's
not much point in working on WPA-None. Beside it's not standard.
Jouni : since you are the most experienced on this subject, what effort
would be involved in implementing 802.11i in IBSS mode? I'll be happy to
contribute, except i'm not a security expert.
