I'm just trying to understand the behavior of wpa_supplicant with WPS.
According to the WSC spec (version 2, January 5, 2010, chapter 9) it looks like WEP shouldn't be supported by WPS.
This requirement is accomplished by wpa_supplicant enrollee: after processing message 8, it checks the encryption type (in wps_process_creds_e()) and refuses APs that support WEP encryption.
But in registrar, it doesn't check for encryption type, and allows connection to WEP protected network. Is it right? Should it be changed in some way?

In addition, the WPS glue layer, in wpa_supplicant_wps_cred(), it looks like wpa_supplicant configuration supports WEP or TKIP encryption. Isn't it redundant?

Thanks in advance,
