Session Key and initialization vector

Hi,

is the session key the key used with the initialization vector IV as input parameters for the RC4algorithm? In this way the server and the client derive the WEP key for the data unicast encryption.

Very thancks.

Re: Session Key and initialization vector

Since december 2000, we support a session key, which is negociated by the LEAP protocol after a login/password authentication with the Cisco Secure ACS Radius server. With this implementation the session key is used as the input parameter for the RC4 algorithm.

Since december 2001, we have a new firmware release (actual AP release 11.21 available on CCO) that support a 'TKIP' implementation, where the session key is hashed for each packet to obtain a uniq 'packet' key, used as the input parameter for the RC4 algo for the packet. The radio firmware must be upgraded in both AP and Client.
