How to add wi-fi to pfsense in an anti-KRACK way ?
krack-question last edited by
i am aware of the latest vulnerability in WPA2
what are the options for adding wi-fi to a pfsense box which won't introduce a KRACK vulnerability?
so far it seems the options are:
- add a patched ARM-router with wi-fi
- add a patched access point
- add a wireless network card to pfsense
would i be able to simply connect something like this to pfsense, to enable wi-fi, with pfsense handling the wi-fi handshake:
Is this AP you going to be using a wifi client itself, ie wireless uplink vs a wire?
AP are only open to this krack is if they are using wireless uplink, ie they are a wifi client themselves. If your AP is connected to the network with a wire - and not acting as a wifi "client" then it is not open to this problem..
You need to make sure all your wifi clients are patched..
When using a AP, pfsense has zero to do with wireless. A wireless extender is something that would be open because it has a wireless uplink.. If you are using any of those in your wifi then yes they should be patched.
