Subject: Hidden SSID's
Date: Fri, 26 Jan 2007 21:48:01 -0600	[thread overview]
Message-ID: <45BACB71.2080107@lwfinger.net> (raw)

Is there a convention regarding the information that a wireless MAC layer should provide when
reporting scan data from an AP with a hidden SSID?

In ieee80211, the software inserts the string "<hidden>" for such an AP, which seems to give
wpa_supplicant fits because it rejects the SSID before even looking at the encryption data. Is this
the normal convention?

Thanks,

Larry
