I use an external connection manager to talk to the supplicant and when I add a PSK network I might not know if the AP supports 11R and PMF. What would the negative implications be if I add "FT-PSK WPA-PSK-SHA256" to the key_mgmt in supplicant.conf whenever I add a PSK network?
To be clear, whenever I add a network, which is supposed to look like:
Would it hurt to implicitly make it look like the following?
ssid=" test "
key_mgmt=WPA-PSK FT-PSK WPA-PSK-SHA256
So far, I have not seen any problems and I guess the "wpa_supplicant_set_suites" function is the rescuer thanks to:
sel = ie.key_mgmt & ssid->key_mgmt;
Best regards Ola
