WPA2-Personal (PSK) Encyption AES


4MLinux is excellent OS I was looking for. Thank you!
1. Is it possible in network configuration to include WPA2-Personal (PSK) Encryption to be AES?
4MLinux-21 has only TKIP,CCMP and I need AES.
2. The Ctrl+Shift+C and Ctrl+Shift+V does not work in Terminal. How do I copy and paste in Terminal.
In advance I really appreciate your help!

Welcome to LQ and 4MLinux !

1) WiFi. I am now connected to the Internet via my router, which is setup to use WPA2/AES exclusively. This is possible because CCMP is based on the AES standard. Your WiFi may need something else. Which version of 4MLinux are you running? Is it installed to a hard disk drive?

2) Terminal. Highlighting with cursor to copy and middle mouse button to paste. See: http://www.linuxquestions.org/questi...ns-4175558298/


Thanks for your nice words about 4MLinux :-)

But also, be certain that your network hardware is new enough to support WPA2. The underlying low-level encryption process (in the hardware) might still be the one used by WEP: the original WPA was designed to be backward compatible with WEP-capable hardware. I'm not sure but that WPA2 might allow the same thing.

Thus, although far more sophisticated key-negotiation and error-detection protocols are now used "on the top half," the physical encryption might still be occurring to WEP standards albeit with a periodically-renegotiated physical key value.

The encryption protocols that are available for wireless networking are still "minimal," and so they should only be considered adequate to protect against "nuisance use" of a particular wireless network, not serious concealment. They of course will do nothing to stop a "coffee-shop spy." You should not use "open sharing" of any resource on your home network: everyone should require a user-name and password, and the data flow between the machines should be encrypted. If you are doing anything of a sensitive nature, it should always be protected by SSL (https) security, and/or by [Open]VPN.

Thank you for your respond.
I use 4MLinux-21 installed on HDD and I have working wired connection to the Internet but no WiFi connection. The router I use, has only AES encryption for WPA2-Personal (PSK) and I thought this is the reason not to have WiFi connection, because 4MLinux-21 in GUI network settings has only TKIP, CCMP.
There is a note “wlan0 is not assigned” after all correct network settings.

Where can you see this note? What is the output of the connect command in your terminal?

Sorry for my typo, the correct reading is:
"wlan0 is Not associated" - cursor over the icon for network connection, bottom right corner.

root@4MLinux:~$ connect
Connecting via the wlan0 interface:
udhcpc: started, v1.25.0
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: sending discover
udhcpc: no lease, failing
root@4MLinux:~$

Hi again,

Theoretically speaking, there are the following possibilities:
1) You need additional firmware.
or
2) You need additional drivers.
or
3) You need both firmware and drivers.
or
4) Your card is not supported by 4MLinux.

You can find firmware and drivers (kernel modules) on the 4MLinux installation CD and online:
https://sourceforge.net/projects/lin.../21.0/drivers/

The simplest way to install the 4MLinux package (addon) is described in the 7th point of this post:
http://4mlinux.blogspot.com/2015/07/...x-desktop.html

You will have to reboot your computer.

Good luck !

.
