I know someone who was able to accomplish something interesting using Orinoco cards, a Cisco 350 AP, and a RADIUS server in the network. When a laptop attempts to connect to the network through the wireless card, the RADIUS server authenticates the network credetials and then passes a wep key using a encrypted tunnel. This requires a server for the RADIUS authentication and certificates on the machine to encrypt the original login username and password. Also, the WEP keys are assigned by the network, are only valid for the session, and are rehashed every minute or so.
I wasn't able to get too many details of this setup, but I'd like to know if this makes sense to anyone, and more so, if any/all of this is hardware-specific, which would mean having to purchase the Orinoco cards. I'd want to accomplish something similar, however I want to have my FreeBSD box serve as the access point. And I want it to be in infrastructure mode, not ad-hoc, so I can't use the Orinoco cards for this. Thanks! __________________________________________________ Do you Yahoo!? Yahoo!
