WPA(8) WPA(8) NAME wpa - Wi-Fi Protected Access setup SYNOPSIS aux/wpa [ -dp12 ] [ -s essid ] dev DESCRIPTION Wpa handles the authentication and key exchange with WPA protected wireless networks. The dev parameter specifies the network interface that needs to be setup with WPA. The essid can be set with the -s option. Otherwise, the previously configured essid on the interface will be used. The -p option will prompt and install the preshared key or pap/chap credentials into fac- totum, otherwise the key has to be already present in facto- tum or an interactive key prompter like auth/fgui (see factotum(4)) needs to provide it. The authentication protocol is initiated by the wireless access point so wpa will background itself after the keyprompt and establish the encryption automatically as needed. The optional -1 or -2 arguments can be used to select between WPA1/TKIP (default) or WPA2/CCMP encryption with WPA PSK. The -d option enables debugging and causes wpa to stay in foreground writing protocol messages to standard error.
