This update for wpa_supplicant fixes the following issues:

This security issue was fixed:

  • CVE-2018-14526: Under certain conditions, the integrity of EAPOL-Key messages was not checked, leading to a decryption oracle. An attacker within range of the Access Point and client could have abused the vulnerability to recover sensitive information (bsc#1104205).

This non-security issue was fixed:

  • Enabled PWD as EAP method. This allows for password-based authentication, which is easier to setup than most of the other methods, and is used by the Eduroam network (bsc#1109209).
