WEP crypto support for 802.11 devices
module handles the WEP cryptographic requirements of the 802.11 protocol. It does encapsulation and decapsulation of WEP-encoded 802.11 frames and optionally calculates the WEP cipher. The
module is an 802.11 cryptographic plugin module for use by the
module. This module is automatically loaded if a WEP key is configured with
. Should the underlying network device not be capable of doing the WEP calculations in hardware, the
module will do the work.
STANDARDS More information can be found in the IEEE 802.11 Standard.
