Description

The NMSettingWirelessSecurity object is a NMSetting subclass that describes properties necessary for connection to encrypted Wi-Fi networks.

It's a good idea to read up on wpa_supplicant configuration before using this setting extensively, since most of the options here correspond closely with the relevant wpa_supplicant configuration options. To get a better overview of how Wi-Fi security works, you may want to get copies of the following books.

Types and Values

NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_SETTING_NAME

#define NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_SETTING_NAME "802-11-wireless-security"

enum NMWepKeyType

The NMWepKeyType values specify how any WEP keys present in the setting are interpreted. There are no standards governing how to hash the various WEP key/passphrase formats into the actual WEP key. Unfortunately some WEP keys can be interpreted in multiple ways, requiring the setting to specify how to interpret the any WEP keys. For example, the key "732f2d712e4a394a375d366931" is both a valid Hexadecimal WEP key and a WEP passphrase. Further, many ASCII keys are also valid WEP passphrases, but since passphrases and ASCII keys are hashed differently to determine the actual WEP key the type must be specified.

Members

NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_UNKNOWN

unknown WEP key type

 

NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_KEY

indicates a hexadecimal or ASCII formatted WEP key. Hex keys are either 10 or 26 hexadecimal characters (ie "5f782f2f5f" or "732f2d712e4a394a375d366931"), while ASCII keys are either 5 or 13 ASCII characters (ie "abcde" or "blahblah99$*1").

 

NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_PASSPHRASE

indicates a WEP passphrase (ex "I bought a duck on my way back from the market 235Q&^%^*%") instead of a hexadecimal or ASCII key. Passphrases are between 8 and 64 characters inclusive and are hashed the actual WEP key using the MD5 hash algorithm.

 

NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_LAST

placeholder value for bounds-checking

 

enum NMSettingWirelessSecurityPmf

These flags indicate whether PMF must be enabled.

Members

NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DEFAULT

use the default value

enum NMSettingWirelessSecurityWpsMethod

Configure the use of WPS by a connection while it activates.

Note: prior to 1.16, this was a GEnum type instead of a GFlags type although, with the same numeric values.

Members

NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_WPS_METHOD_DEFAULT

Attempt whichever method AP supports

 

NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_WPS_METHOD_DISABLED

WPS can not be used.

 

NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_WPS_METHOD_AUTO

Property Details

The “auth-alg” property

  “auth-alg”                 gchar *

When WEP is used (ie, key-mgmt = "none" or "ieee8021x") indicate the 802.11 authentication algorithm required by the AP here. One of "open" for Open System, "shared" for Shared Key, or "leap" for Cisco LEAP. When using Cisco LEAP (ie, key-mgmt = "ieee8021x" and auth-alg = "leap") the "leap-username" and "leap-password" properties must be specified.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “fils” property

  “fils”                     gint

Indicates whether Fast Initial Link Setup (802.11ai) must be enabled for the connection. One of NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_DEFAULT (use global default value), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_DISABLE (disable FILS), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_OPTIONAL (enable FILS if the supplicant and the access point support it) or NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_REQUIRED (enable FILS and fail if not supported). When set to NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_DEFAULT and no global default is set, FILS will be optionally enabled.

The “group” property

  “group”                    GStrv

A list of group/broadcast encryption algorithms which prevents connections to Wi-Fi networks that do not utilize one of the algorithms in the list. For maximum compatibility leave this property empty. Each list element may be one of "wep40", "wep104", "tkip", or "ccmp".

Flags: Read / Write

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “leap-password” property

  “leap-password”            gchar *

The login password for legacy LEAP connections (ie, key-mgmt = "ieee8021x" and auth-alg = "leap").

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “leap-password-flags” property

  “leap-password-flags”      NMSettingSecretFlags

Flags indicating how to handle the “leap-password” property.

Flags: Read / Write

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “pairwise” property

  “pairwise”                 GStrv

A list of pairwise encryption algorithms which prevents connections to Wi-Fi networks that do not utilize one of the algorithms in the list. For maximum compatibility leave this property empty. Each list element may be one of "tkip" or "ccmp".

Flags: Read / Write


The “pmf” property

  “pmf”                      gint

Indicates whether Protected Management Frames (802.11w) must be enabled for the connection. One of NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DEFAULT (use global default value), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DISABLE (disable PMF), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_OPTIONAL (enable PMF if the supplicant and the access point support it) or NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_REQUIRED (enable PMF and fail if not supported). When set to NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DEFAULT and no global default is set, PMF will be optionally enabled.

Flags: Read / Write / Construct

Default value: 0

Since: 1.10


The “proto” property

  “proto”                    GStrv

List of strings specifying the allowed WPA protocol versions to use. Each element may be one "wpa" (allow WPA) or "rsn" (allow WPA2/RSN). If not specified, both WPA and RSN connections are allowed.

Flags: Read / Write


The “psk” property

  “psk”                      gchar *

Pre-Shared-Key for WPA networks. For WPA-PSK, it's either an ASCII passphrase of 8 to 63 characters that is (as specified in the 802.11i standard) hashed to derive the actual key, or the key in form of 64 hexadecimal character. The WPA3-Personal networks use a passphrase of any length for SAE authentication.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “psk-flags” property

  “psk-flags”                NMSettingSecretFlags

Flags indicating how to handle the “psk” property.

Flags: Read / Write


The “wep-key-flags” property

  “wep-key-flags”            NMSettingSecretFlags

Flags indicating how to handle the “wep-key0”, “wep-key1”, “wep-key2”, and “wep-key3” properties.

Flags: Read / Write


The “wep-key-type” property

  “wep-key-type”             NMWepKeyType

Controls the interpretation of WEP keys. Allowed values are NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_KEY, in which case the key is either a 10- or 26-character hexadecimal string, or a 5- or 13-character ASCII password; or NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_PASSPHRASE, in which case the passphrase is provided as a string and will be hashed using the de-facto MD5 method to derive the actual WEP key.

Flags: Read / Write / Construct

Default value: NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_UNKNOWN


The “wep-key0” property

  “wep-key0”                 gchar *

Index 0 WEP key. This is the WEP key used in most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “wep-key1” property

  “wep-key1”                 gchar *

Index 1 WEP key. This WEP index is not used by most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “wep-key2” property

  “wep-key2”                 gchar *

Index 2 WEP key. This WEP index is not used by most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “wep-key3” property

  “wep-key3”                 gchar *

Index 3 WEP key. This WEP index is not used by most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.

Flags: Read / Write

Default value: NULL


The “wep-tx-keyidx” property

  “wep-tx-keyidx”            guint

When static WEP is used (ie, key-mgmt = "none") and a non-default WEP key index is used by the AP, put that WEP key index here. Valid values are 0 (default key) through 3. Note that some consumer access points (like the Linksys WRT54G) number the keys 1 - 4.

Flags: Read / Write / Construct

Allowed values: <= 3

Default value: 0


The “wps-method” property

  “wps-method”               guint

Flags indicating which mode of WPS is to be used if any.

There's little point in changing the default setting as NetworkManager will automatically determine whether it's feasible to start WPS enrollment from the Access Point capabilities.

WPS can be disabled by setting this property to a value of 1.
