Description

Support for WPA2 encryption is now possible thanks to IBSS_RSN. Mac80211 (ath5k/ath9k) has support for it in OpenWRT trunk.

Some characteristics are:

- Broadcast messages are encrypted used the common shared key

- Unicast messages are encrypted using a uniq private token between the nodes

- It is managed by hostapd and wpa_supplicant (or wpad in OpenWRT)

It is very interesting for QMP to secure the backbone mesh network.
