hostapd drives the hostap side of session and encryption management.

You need a hostapd config file to enable WPA/WPA2 and encryption.


Put this in /etc/hostapd.conf

interface=wlan0
driver=bsd
ssid=SSID_THAT_YOU_WANT
wpa=3
wpa_key_mgmt=WPA-PSK
wpa_passphrase=PSK_THAT_YOU_WANT
wpa_pairwise=CCMP
ctrl_interface=/var/run/hostapd

Then in rc.conf

hostapd_enable="YES"

Then reboot. It should start hostapd for you.
