Wilink8 KRACK Fix [ANSWERED]

Postby chrisw957 » Wed Nov 08, 2017 9:21 pm

TI has released some wilink8 patches to address the KRACK vulnerability. Can we get some help from Variscite to get that integrated into the Yocto recipes?

Hi,

We're integrating TI fixes into our releases. The customers should receive formal notification when we're ready.

Felix.

Great, thanks. Do you have an idea of timeframe? Will we not see it until the next NXP release?

The release of the KRACK fixes is not tied to NXP release. We're waiting for TI to officially release the firmware fix as a service pack, so we can integrate it it into our build process. As soon as we get time frame from TI I'll update this thread.

TI created R8.7_SP3 tags with the KRACK fixes applied, if anyone is interested. I tried it out, and it seemed fine.

Thanks, we've noticed that as well and started the integration. hostapd and wpa_supplicant also need fixing.
