WEP crypto support for 802.11 devices
module handles the WEP
cryptographic requirements of the 802.11 protocol. It does encapsulation and
decapsulation of WEP-encoded 802.11 frames and optionally calculates the WEP
module is an 802.11
cryptographic plugin module for use by the
module. This module is automatically
loaded if a WEP key is configured with
. Should the underlying network device
not be capable of doing the WEP calculations in hardware, the
module will do the work.
