+To do:
+- hostap: try other roaming modes
+ NOTE: current mode (manual roaming) does not really roam at all..
+ Firmware did not notice the current AP disappearing..
+- add support for WPA with ap_scan=0 (update selected cipher etc. based on
+ AssocInfo; make sure these match with configuration)
+- consider closing smart card / PCSC connection when EAP-SIM/EAP-AKA
+ authentication has been completed (cache scard data based on serial#(?)
+ and try to optimize next connection if the same card is present for next
+ auth)
+- on disconnect event, could try to associate with another AP if one is
+ present in scan results; would need to update scan results periodically..
+- if driver/hw is not WPA2 capable, must remove WPA_PROTO_RSN flag from
+ ssid->proto fields to avoid detecting downgrade attacks when the driver
+ is not reporting RSN IE, but msg 3/4 has one
+- Cisco AP and non-zero keyidx for unicast -> map to broadcast
+ (actually, this already works with driver_ndis; so maybe just change
+ driver_*.c to do the mapping for drivers that cannot handle non-zero keyidx
+ for unicast); worked also with Host AP driver and madwifi
+- IEEE 802.1X and key update with driver_ndis?? wpa_supplicant did not seem
+ to see unencrypted EAPOL-Key frames at all..
+- EAP-PAX with PAX_SEC
+- EAP (RFC 3748)
+ * OTP Extended Responses (Sect. 5.5)
+- test what happens if authenticator sends EAP-Success before real EAP
+ authentication ("canned" Success); this should be ignored based on
+ RFC 3748 Sect. 4.2
+- test compilation with gcc -W options (more warnings?)
+ (Done once; number of unused function arguments still present)
+- add proper support for using dot11RSNAConfigSATimeout
+- ctrl_iface: get/set/remove blob
+- use doc/docbook/*.sgml and docbook2{txt,html,pdf} to replace README and
+ web pages including the same information.. i.e., have this information only
+ in one page; how to build a PDF file with all the SGML included?
+- EAP-POTP/RSA SecurID profile (RFC 4793)
+- document wpa_gui build and consider adding it to 'make install'
+- test madwifi with pairwise=TKIP group=WEP104
+- possibility to link in WPA Authenticator state machine to wpa_supplicant
+ (new PeerKey handshake, WPA2/IEEE 802.11 (RSN) IBSS)
+- consider merging hostapd and wpa_supplicant PMKSA cache implementations
+- consider redesigning pending EAP requests (identity/password/otp from
+ ctrl_iface) by moving the retrying of the previous request into EAP
+ state machine so that EAPOL state machine is not needed for this
+- rfc4284.txt (network selection for eap)
+- www pages about configuring wpa_supplicant:
+ * global options (ap_scan, ctrl_interfaces) based on OS/driver
+ * network block
+ * key_mgmt selection
+ * WPA parameters
+ * EAP options (one page for each method)
+ * "configuration wizard" (step 1: select OS, step 2: select driver, ...) to
+ generate example configuration
+- error path in rsn_preauth_init: should probably deinit l2_packet handlers
+ if something fails; does something else need deinit?
+- consider moving SIM card functionality (IMSI fetching) away from eap.c;
+ this should likely happen before EAP is initialized for authentication;
+ now IMSI is read only after receiving EAP-Identity/Request, but since it is
+ really needed for all cases, reading IMSI and generating Identity string
+ could very well be done before EAP has been started
+- try to work around race in receiving association event and first EAPOL
+ message
+- helper function to do memcmp(addr, "\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00\x00", ETH_ALEN)
+- add wpa_secure_memzero() macro and secure implementation (volatile u8*) to
+ clear memory; this would be used to clear temporary buffers containing
+ private data (e.g., keys); the macro can be defined to NOP in order to save
+ space (i.e., no code should depend on the macro doing something)
+- make sure that TLS session cache is not shared between EAP types or if it
+ is, that the cache entries are bound to only one EAP type; e.g., cache entry
+ created with EAP-TLS must not be allowed to do fast re-auth with EAP-TTLS
+- consider moving eap_tls_build_ack() call into eap_tls_process_helper()
+ (it seems to be called always if helper returns 1)
+ * could need to modify eap_{ttls,peap,fast}_decrypt to do same
+- add support for fetching full user cert chain from Windows certificate
+ stores even when there are intermediate CA certs that are not in the
+ configured ca_cert store (e.g., ROOT) (they could be, e.g., in CA store)
+
+
+0.6.x branch:
+- clean up common.[ch]
+- change TLS/crypto library interface to use a structure of function
+ pointers and helper inline functions (like driver_ops) instead of
+ requiring every TLS wrapper to implement all functions
+- add support for encrypted configuration fields (e.g., password, psk,
+ passphrase, pin)
+- wpa_gui: add support for setting and showing priority, auth_alg
+ (open/shared for static WEP)
+
+- cleanup TLS/PEAP/TTLS/FAST fragmentation: both the handshake and Appl. Data
+ phases should be able to use the same functions for this;
+ the last step in processing sent should be this code and rest of the code
+ should not need to care about fragmentation at all
+- test EAP-FAST peer with OpenSSL and verify that fallback to full handshake
+ (ServerHello followed by something else than ChangeCipherSpec)
