    AP-STA-CONNECTED event in WPA2/WPA3 connection

    yasa_4608926

      Hi,

       

      I am running as a SoftAP using the following.

      - FMAC v4.14.77-2020_0115 (https://community.cypress.com/docs/DOC-19000)

      - CYW4343W (SDIO)

      - Hostapd v2.9 (fmac patches applied)

       

      My application is using the AP-STA-CONNECTED event to detect that the new connection is established.

      In no-security mode, it can receive the AP-STA-CONNECTED event from hostapd when the STA connection is established.

      But, if using WPA2(or WPA3) as the security mode, it does not receive the AP-STA-CONNECTED event when the STA connection is established.

      I think the reason is that the 4-way handshake/SAE authentication are offloaded. Because it can receive the AP-STA-CONNECTED event if offloading is disabled.

       

      How should the hostapd source code be modified to use the AP-STA-CONNECTED event?

       

      Or should I use another event?

      Are there any other events available to detect that the STA connections is established?

       

      Best regards,

      Yasa
