Hello everybody,

First of all thanks for the great work with Connman.

I saw that Connman now also supports SAE (WPA3), but this is currently only available in the master branch. Are there any plans of releasing the current changes in the near future?

It would also be great if OWE (Opportunistic Wireless Encryption) would be supported at some point. Connman would need to identify it as ‘none’ type security and when connecting the key_mgmt=OWE is needed (at least when using wpa_supplicant). The information about this can be found in the Information Element data of the BSS in the AKM Suite List (see IEEE Std 802.11 chapter RSNE). OWE has suite type 18.

When parsing the Information Element is already implemented in Connman (I am not yet familiar with the code) the usage of the IEEE80211w could also be read from it. The Management Frame Protection Required (IEEE80211w=2) and Management Frame Protection Capable can be found in the RSN capabilities ( RSN capabilities - Bits 6 and 7). Currently this is only hard coded set within Connman when connecting to WPA3-SAE as this is required there and needs to be optional (IEEE80211w=1) for the transition mode.
