todo.txt Driver File Contents (rtl8712_8188_8191_8192SU_usb_linux_v2.6.0006.20100202.zip)

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
- 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)

How To Update Drivers Manually

After your driver has been downloaded, follow these simple steps to install it.

  • Expand the archive file (if the download file is in zip or rar format).

  • If the expanded file has an .exe extension, double click it and follow the installation instructions.

  • Otherwise, open Device Manager by right-clicking the Start menu and selecting Device Manager.

  • Find the device and model you want to update in the device list.

  • Double-click on it to open the Properties dialog box.

  • From the Properties dialog box, select the Driver tab.

  • Click the Update Driver button, then follow the instructions.

Very important: You must reboot your system to ensure that any driver updates have taken effect.
