RE: 802.1x and dynamic WEP keying

Date: 2002-09-23 17:35:42 UTC

We have it working using the hostap_pci driver + xsupplicant on the client, with a commercial RADIUS server and a commercial access point (Orinoco). The driver required slight modifications (see my message to this list on Sept. 19). The client device is an IBM High Rate Wireless LAN MiniPCI (built-in 802.11b in the IBM Thinkpad.)

My understanding is that the AP maintains per-client WEP keys which are generated once per 1x auth (and regenerated after some period of time, e.g. 1 hr) and a broadcast WEP key which is the same across clients (also regenerated after some period of time.)

I'm trying to find information on wheter dynamic WEP keying actually works with xsupplicant-based client + hostap(d) + FreeRADIUS, but didn't find any direct references so far.

Did anyone check that? What cards did you use for the client? Is the session key generated once per session, or is regenerated after some period of time?

I'm running a fixed outdoor wireless network and mainly interested in a solution which would provide facilities to periodically generate and distribute new WEP keys to all stations.
