Description Summer Maynard 2004-01-16 17:03:47 EST
Need support for pep.  Please let me know if you need any specifics other than that.
Comment 2 Robert Perkins 2004-04-21 09:24:41 EDT
What is pep?  Please provide detail.  Any community work being done?
Comment 3 Summer Maynard 2004-04-28 12:32:57 EDT
Sorry, they had put in pep, but it is actually PEAP (my fault for not catching
that).  PEAP (Protected Extensible Authentication Protocol) is a protocol by
Microsoft, Cisco, and RSA.  Here's a definition site:

http://www.nwfusion.com/details/795.html

"PEAP makes it possible to authenticate wireless LAN clients without requiring
them to have certificates, simplifying the architecture of secure wireless LANs."

I see a lot of talk about it in the community, but do not really see any real
projects out there.  Perhaps the desktop folks would know more?

Here's another interesting article with associated links:

The bug status ASSIGN_TO_PM has been deprecated. In the future please use
ASSIGNED and either add the PM to the Cc list or re-assign report to them.

Seems this got stuck in the process as it was assigned to Chris Blizzard, who
does not own it anymore.
