> Hi Jouni, 
> This patch resolves 2 issues with wpa_supplicant trying to connect an
> AP in Transient Security Network (TSN) mode like Cisco Aironet 1200
> (which is a part of wifi testbed).
> The patch allows the supplicant to connect to the AP only when the
> supplicant is configured to WEP mode. It doesn't allow the supplicant
> to connect in any of the WPA modes (the current state is the other way
> around, which is a security breech for the supplicant, since the AP
> allows both WPA and WEP access, so less privileged users might gain
> access to WPA privileged data.
> The patch was built and tested against 0.4.9, but I can do it on the
> latest 0.4.10 / 0.5.8 if you insist.
> Regards, 
> Ran & Assaf
