— WEP crypto support for
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 cipher. The
module is an 802.11 cryptographic plugin module for
use by the wlan(4)
module. This module is automatically
loaded if a WEP key is configured with ifconfig(8)
the underlying network device not be capable of doing the WEP calculations in
hardware, the wlan_wep
module will do the work.
More information can be found in the IEEE 802.11 Standard.
