Till Kamppeter has proposed merging ~till-kamppeter/network-manager:master into network-manager:master.
Backport detecting Wi-Fi FT support per interface, release as 1.20.0-1ubuntu2
For more details, see:
This is a backport of the upstream change to not prefer FT-PSK when it is only supported by supplicant but not by the Wi-Fi interface or driver.
Previously we only cared whether supplicant is build with support for
FT. In that case we would pass FT-PSK to supplicant, like
Config: added 'key_mgmt' value 'WPA-PSK WPA-PSK-SHA256 FT-PSK'
Supplicant would then always try FT with preference, regardless whether
the interface/driver support it. That results in a failure to associate, if
the driver does not support it.
NetworkManager: <info> [1566296144.9940] Config: added 'key_mgmt' value 'WPA-PSK WPA-PSK-SHA256 FT-PSK'
wpa_supplicant: wlan0: WPA: AP key_mgmt 0x42 network profile key_mgmt 0x142; available key_mgmt 0x42
wpa_supplicant: wlan0: WPA: using KEY_MGMT FT/PSK
wpa_supplicant: * akm=0xfac04
kernel: ERROR @wl_set_key_mgmt :
kernel: invalid cipher group (1027076)
Since we pass a list of acceptable "key_mgmt" options to supplicant,
FT-PSK should not be used when supplicant knows it's not supported.
That is a supplicant bug.
Regardless, work around it by checking the per-interface capability, and
avoid it if support is apparently not present.
Your team Network-manager is requested to review the proposed merge of ~till-kamppeter/network-manager:master into network-manager:master.
