I am new to wireless and wpa_supplicant. Your help is highly appreciated.
I need to apply security to a small wireless client node. The node has very
limited RAM/ROM space. Having OpenSSL or GNU-TLS would be too much for the
chip. I wonder whether it is possible to use wpa_supplicant without OpenSSL
Here is my understanding. I can use WPA for authentication and TKIP for link
layer security. I can skip SSL for network layer security. In this case,
there is no need to use OpenSSL. wpa_supplicant alone is good enough for
If I really need OpenSSL, how difficult to replace OpenSSL with some
embedded encryption libraries like MatrixSSL or cryptlib?
Can any one share your opinions with me?
Thanks a lot!
