#8876 closed defect (fixed)

add client_cert to wireless uci parser

Reported by: chunkeey@… Owned by: developers
Priority: normal Milestone: Chaos Calmer 15.05
Component: packages Version: Trunk
Keywords: wpa_supplicant EAP TLS Cc:


quote from wpa_supplicant code (eap_config.h):

"When PKCS12/PFX file (.p12/.pfx) is used, client_cert should be
commented out. Both the private key and certificate will be read from the PKCS12 file in this case."

According to the quote above, the client_cert paramter can only be omitted from the config if the user packs his key+certificates into a PKCS12/PFX file. What the documentation does not say is that the the internal crypto code can't cope with PKCS2/PFX and the OpenSSL crypto backend is needed.
