4.346. wpa_supplicant

An enhanced wpa_supplicant package that adds an enhancement is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux 6.
The wpa_supplicant package contains a WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) Supplicant utility for Linux, BSD, and Windows with support for WPA and WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i/RSN). The supplicant is a IEEE 802.1X/WPA component that is used in client workstations. It implements key negotiation with a WPA Authenticator and it controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11 authentication/association of the wlan driver.
The wpa_supplicant package has been upgraded to upstream version 0.7.3. This update provides the nl80211 driver and background scanning functionality that are required for efficient connections to RSA token-based WiFi networks. (BZ#713280)
Users that require roaming in RSA token-based WiFi networks are advised to upgrade to this updated package, which adds this enhancement.
