    Questions about WIFI credentials stored at DCT

      Hi all,

       

      I have a requirement to read the Wifi password on a WICED device, then pass it to another WICED device using a non-wifi communication link. However, it looks like I always read out a ciphered password of length 64 (using wiced_dct_read_lock), although a plain-text password is written to DCT_WIFI_CONFIG_SECTION (using wiced_dct_write). I am using WICED SDK 3.1.2 and WPA2 security.

       

      Questions:

      1. I supposed this is the correct behavior of a WICED device. If not, please explain.

      2. How do I get a plain-text password by reading from DCT_WIFI_CONFIG_SECTION?

       

       

      Thank you!
