AES-CCMP crypto support for 802.11 devices
module handles the AES-CCMP
cryptographic requirements of the WPA and 802.11i protocols. It does
encapsulation and decapsulation of CCMP-encoded 802.11 frames and optionally
calculates the AES-CCMP cipher. The
module is an 802.11 cryptographic
plugin module for use by the
module. This module is automatically loaded if an AES-CCMP key is configured;
typically by a WPA supplicant program such as wpa_supplicant, or a WPA
authenticator program such as
Should the underlying network device not be capable of doing the AES-CCMP
calculations in hardware, the
module will do the work.
