> +WPA/WPA2-Personal passphrase is not allowed to include control
> +characters. Reject a Credential received from a WPS Registrar both as
> +STA (Credential) and AP (AP Settings) if the credential is for WPAPSK or
> +WPA2PSK authentication type and includes an invalid passphrase.
> +
> +This fixes an issue where hostapd or wpa_supplicant could have updated
> +the configuration file PSK/passphrase parameter with arbitrary data from
> +an external device (Registrar) that may not be fully trusted. Should
> +such data include a newline character, the resulting configuration file
> +could become invalid and fail to be parsed.
