LEAP: Key used in RF client to RF client connection

Hi,

I've got a question regarding how the AP works with session keys and LEAP authentication.

Assume we have two PC client (PC_A and PC_B) with a Aironet CARD. They use both the LEAP authentication method and they are both well authenticated. AP has got both session keys.

WHen PC_A wants to talk with PC_B: PC_A encrypts with SessionKey_A, send it to AP, AP decrypts with SessionKey_A then encrypts with SessionKey_B and send it to B...

Question: Is that right ?

Yes, you are right!

AP knows all the session keys. Each client knows only its key. This way client can not 'snoop' transparently other exchanges.
