WLAN_CCMP(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		  WLAN_CCMP(4)

NAME
     wlan_ccmp -- AES-CCMP crypto support for 802.11 devices

SYNOPSIS
     device wlan_ccmp

DESCRIPTION
     The wlan_ccmp module handles the AES-CCMP cryptographic requirements of
     the WPA and 802.11i protocols.  It	does encapsulation and decapsulation
     of	CCMP-encoded 802.11 frames and optionally calculates the AES-CCMP
     cipher.  The wlan_ccmp module is an 802.11	cryptographic plugin module
     for use by	the wlan(4) module.  This module is automatically loaded if an
     AES-CCMP key is configured; typically by a	WPA supplicant program such as
     wpa_supplicant, or	a WPA authenticator program such as hostapd.  Should
     the underlying network device not be capable of doing the AES-CCMP	calcu-
     lations in	hardware, the wlan_ccmp	module will do the work.

SEE ALSO
     wlan(4), wlan_tkip(4), wlan_wep(4)

STANDARDS
     More information can be found in the IEEE 802.11, WPA, and	802.11i	Stan-
     dards.

HISTORY
     The wlan_ccmp driver first	appeared in FreeBSD 6.0.
