WLAN_TKIP(4)	       FreeBSD Kernel Interfaces Manual		  WLAN_TKIP(4)

NAME
     wlan_tkip -- TKIP and Michael crypto support for 802.11 devices

SYNOPSIS
     device wlan_tkip

DESCRIPTION
     The wlan_tkip module handles the TKIP and Michael cryptographic require-
     ments of the WPA and 802.11i protocols.  It does encapsulation and	decap-
     sulation of TKIP-encoded 802.11 frames and	optionally calculates the TKIP
     cipher and	Michael	MIC.  The wlan_tkip module is an 802.11	cryptographic
     plugin module for use by the wlan(4) module.  This	module is automati-
     cally loaded if a TKIP 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 TKIP and/or Michael calculations in hardware, the wlan_tkip module
     will do the work.

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

HISTORY
     The wlan_tkip driver first	appeared in FreeBSD 6.0.
