[RESOLU] Installer wpa_supplicant


connaissez vous le logiciel wpa_supplicant ?
J'en ai besoin mais les commandes suivantes ne trouvent pas le paquet à installer :

sudo apt-get update

j'ai bien trouvé le paquet sur ce site ici , mais je ne comprend rien au README, il est long comme le bras et je ne vois pas où est expliqué l'installation :


The Debian wpasupplicant package provides two (2) convenient modes of operation
that are closely integrated to the core networking infrastructure; ifupdown.

1. Specifying the wpa_supplicant driver backend

The wext driver backend will be used for all interfaces that do not explicitly
set 'wpa-driver' to the driver type required for that device. Users of linux
2.4 kernels, or 2.6 kernels less than 2.6.14 will be required to specify a
wpa-driver type.

Table of supported drivers

A summary of supported drivers follows:

Driver         Description
======         ===========
nl80211        Linux 802.11 netlink interface
wext           Linux wireless extensions (generic)
wired          wired Ethernet driver

Choosing driver backend

Set the driver type in the interfaces(5) stanza for your device with the
'wpa-driver' option. For example:

iface eth0 inet dhcp
        wpa-driver wext
        . . . . . more options

If no wpa-driver configuration is supplied, the wext backend is used.

2. Mode #1: Managed Mode

This mode provides the ability to establish a connection via wpa_supplicant to
one known network. It is similar to how the wireless-tools package works. Each
element required to establish the connection via wpa_supplicant is prefixed
with 'wpa-' and followed by the value that will be used for that element.


NOTE: the 'wpa-psk' value is only valid if:
        1) It is a plaintext (ascii) string between 8 and 63 characters in
        2) It is a hexadecimal string of 64 characters

# Connect to access point of ssid 'NETBEER' with an encryption type of
# WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK. It assumes the driver will use the 'wext' driver backend
# of wpa_supplicant because no wpa-driver option has been specified.
# The passphrase is given as a ASCII (plaintext) string. DHCP is used to
# obtain a network address.
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-ssid MyNetWork
        # plaintext passphrase
        wpa-psk plaintextsecret

# Connect to access point of ssid 'homezone' with an encryption type of
# WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, using the 'wext' driver backend of wpa_supplicant.
# The psk is given as an encoded hexadecimal string. DHCP is used to obtain
# a network address.
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-ssid homezone
        # hexadecimal psk is encoded from a plaintext passphrase
        wpa-psk 000102030405060708090a0b0c0d0e0f101112131415161718191a1b1c1d1e1f

# Connect to access point of ssid 'HotSpot1' and bssid of '00:1a:2b:3c:4d:5e'
# with an encryption type of WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK, using the the 'nl80211' driver
# backend of wpa_supplicant. The passphrase is given as a plaintext string.
# A static network address assignment is used.
iface wlan0 inet static
        wpa-driver nl80211
        wpa-ssid HotSpot1
        wpa-bssid 00:1a:2b:3c:4d:5e
        # plaintext passphrase
        wpa-psk madhotspot
        wpa-key-mgmt WPA-PSK
        wpa-pairwise TKIP CCMP
        wpa-group TKIP CCMP
        wpa-proto WPA RSN
        # static ip settings

# User supplied wpa_supplicant.conf is used for eth1. All network information
# is contained within the user supplied wpa_supplicant.conf. No wpa-driver type
# is specified, so wext is used. DHCP is used to obtain a network address.
iface eth1 inet dhcp
        wpa-conf /path/to/wpa_supplicant.conf

Table of Common Options

A brief summary of common 'wpa-' options that may be used in the
/etc/network/interfaces stanza for a wireless device. See the
'Important Notes About Managed Mode' section for information about
valid and invalid 'wpa-' values.

The complete functionality of wpa_cli(8) should be implemented. Anything
missing is considered a bug and should be reported as such. Patches are always

Important Notes About Managed Mode

Almost all 'wpa-' options require there is at least a ssid specified. Only a
handful of options have a global effect. These are: 'wpa-ap-scan' and

Any 'wpa-' option given for a device in the interfaces(5) file is sufficient to
trigger the wpa_supplicant daemon into action.

The wpasupplicant ifupdown script makes assumptions about the 'type' of input
that is valid for each option. For example, it assumes that some input is
plaintext and wraps quotation marks around the input before passing it on
to wpa_cli, which then adds the input to the network block being formed via
the wpa_supplicant ctrl_interface socket. Running ifup manually with the
'--verbose' option will reveal all of the commands used to form the network
block via wpa_cli. If the value you used for any wpa-* option in
/etc/network/interfaces is surrounded by double quotes, than it has been
assumed to be of "plaintext" or "ascii" type input.

Some input is assumed to be a hexadecimal string (eg. wpa-wep-key*). The value
'type' of the wpa-psk option however, is determined via a simple check for more
than one non hexadecimal character.

How It Works

As mentioned earlier, each wpa_supplicant specific element is prefixed with
'wpa-'. Each element correlates to a property of wpa_supplicant described in
the wpa_supplicant.conf(5), wpa_supplicant(8) and wpa_cli(8) manpages. The
supplicant is launched without any pre-configuration whatsoever, and wpa_cli
forms a network configuration from the input provided by the 'wpa-*' lines.
Initially, wpa_supplicant/wpa_cli does not directly set the properties of the
device (like setting an essid with iwconfig, for example), rather it informs
the device of what access point is suitable to associate with. Once the device
has scanned the area, and found that the suitable access point is available for
use, these properties are set.

The scripts that do all the work are located at:

        /etc/wpa_supplicant/ is executed by run-parts, which in turn is invoked by ifupdown
during the 'pre-up', 'pre-down' and 'post-down' phases.

In the 'pre-up' phase, a wpa_supplicant daemon is launched followed by a series
of wpa_cli commands that set up a network configuration according to what
'wpa-' options were used in /etc/network/interfaces for the physical device.

If wpa-roam is used, a wpa_cli daemon is launched in the 'post-up' phase.

In the 'pre-down' phase, the wpa_cli daemon is terminated.

In the 'post-down' phase, the wpa_supplicant daemon is terminated.

3. Mode #2: Roaming Mode

A self contained, simplistic roaming mechanism is provided by this package. It
is in the form of a wpa_cli action script, /sbin/wpa_action, and it assumes
control of ifupdown once activated. The wpa_action(8) manpage describes its
technical details in great depth.

To activate a roaming interface, adapt the following example interfaces(5)

iface eth1 inet manual
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

Two daemons are spawned from the above example; wpa_supplicant and wpa_cli. It
is required to provide a wpa_supplicant.conf containing a minimal amount of
global options, and any known network blocks that should be connected to
without interaction. A good starting point is provided by an example
configuration file:

        # copy the template to /etc/wpa_supplicant/
        cp /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa-roam.conf \
        # allow only root to read and write to file
        chmod 0600 /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

NOTE: it is critical that the used wpa_supplicant.conf defines the location of
      the 'ctrl_interface' so that a communication socket is created for the
      wpa_cli (wpa-roam daemon) to attach. The mentioned example configuration,
      /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa-roam.conf, has been set to a
      sane default.

It is required to edit this configuration file, and add the network blocks for
all known networks. If you do not understand what this means, start reading the
wpa_supplicant.conf(5) manpage now.

For each network, you may specify a special option 'id_str'. It should be set to
a simple text string. This text string forms the basis for network profiling; it
correlates to a logical interface defined in the interfaces(5) file. When no
'id_str' is given for a network, wpa_action assumes it will use the 'default'
logical interface as fallback. The fallback interface can be chosen via the
'wpa-roam-default-iface' option.

So what does all this mean? Lets illustrate it with a small example taken from
the wpa_action(8) manpage.

        # this id_str will notify /sbin/wpa_action to 'ifup uni'

        # this id_str will notify /sbin/wpa_action to 'ifup home_static'

        # no 'id_str' parameter is given, /sbin/wpa_action will 'ifup default'

# the roaming interface MUST use the manual inet method
# 'allow-hotplug' or 'auto' ensures the daemon starts automatically
allow-hotplug eth1
iface eth1 inet manual
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

# no id_str, 'default' is used as the fallback mapping target
iface default inet dhcp

# id_str="uni"
iface uni inet dhcp

# id_str="home_static"
iface home_static inet static

A logical interface is brought up via ifup, and taken down via ifdown, as
wpa_supplicant associates and de-associates with the network associated
to it by the 'id_str' option used in the wpa_supplicant.conf configuration file.

/sbin/wpa_action's actions are logged to syslog.

Interacting with wpa_supplicant with wpa_cli and wpa_gui

The wpa_supplicant process can be interacted with by members of the "netdev"
group if the example roaming configuration was used as is (or by whatever
group or gid specified by the GROUP= crtl_interface parameter).

        # the default ctrl_interface option used in the example file
        # /usr/share/doc/wpasupplicant/examples/wpa-roam.conf
        ctrl_interface=DIR=/var/run/wpa_supplicant GROUP=netdev

To interact with the supplicant, the wpa_cli (command line) and wpa_gui (QT)
have been provided. With these you may connect, disconnect, add/delete new
network blocks, provide required interactive security information and so on.

Controlling the Roaming Daemon with wpa_action

Once the roaming daemon is started, it assumes control of ifupdown. That is;
wpa_cli calls ifup when wpa_supplicant has successfully associated with an
access point, and calls ifdown when the connection is lost or terminated.
While the roaming daemon is active, ifupdown should not be controlled directly
by manually issued commands, rather /sbin/wpa_action is supplied to stop and
reload the roaming daemon. For example, to stop the
romaing daemon on the device 'eth1':

        wpa_action eth1 stop

When it is required to update the roaming daemon with  a new networks details,
it can be done without stopping it. Edit the wpa_supplicant.conf file that is
being used by the daemon with the new networks details, add optional network
settings to /etc/network/interfaces that are specific to the new network
(linked by the 'id_str') and then 'reload' the daemon like so:

        wpa_action eth1 reload

For the complete technical details of what wpa_action can do, read the
wpa_action(8) manpage.

Fine Tuning the Roaming Setup

You may face situations where multiple known access points are in close
proximity. You can choose which one is preferred manually, with wpa_cli or
wpa_gui, or you can give each network its own priority. This is provided by the
'priority' option of wpa_supplicant.conf.

Using External Mapping Scripts (e.g. guessnet)

In addition to the internal mapping of logical interfaces via 'id_str',
wpa_action can call external mapping scripts. A mapping script should return
the name of the logical interface which should be brought up. Any mapping
script that works from ifupdowns mapping mechanism (see man interfaces) should
also work when called from wpa_action.

To call a mapping script add a line 'wpa-mapping-script name-of-the-script' to
the interfaces stanza of the physical roaming device. (You may have to specify
the absolute path to the mapping script.)

The contents of lines starting with wpa-map are passed to stdin of the mapping
script. Since ifupdown allows only one wpa-map line you can append any number
to wpa-map for additional lines. For example:

iface wlan0 inet manual
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
        wpa-mapping-script guessnet-ifupdown
        wpa-map0 home
        wpa-map1 work
        wpa-map2 school
        # ... additional wpa-mapX lines as required

By default the mapping script will only be used when no 'id_str' is available
for the current network. If you want to completely disable 'id_str' matching
and use only an external mapping script, use the
'wpa-mapping-script-priority 1' option to override default behaviour.

If the mapping script returns an empty string wpa_action will fallback to using
the 'default' interface, unless an alternative is defined by the
'wpa-roam-default-iface' option.

Below is an advanced example, using guessnet-ifupdown as the external mapping

/etc/network/interfaces with external mapping

allow-hotplug wlan0
iface wlan0 inet manual
        wpa-driver wext
        wpa-roam /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf
        wpa-roam-default-iface default-wparoam
        wpa-mapping-script guessnet-ifupdown
        wpa-map default: default-guessnet
        wpa-map0 home_static
        wpa-map1 work_static

# school can only be chosen via 'id_str' matching
iface school inet dhcp
        # resolvconf

iface home_static inet static
        test peer address mac 00:01:02:03:04:05

iface work_static inet static
        test peer address mac 00:01:02:03:04:05

iface default-guessnet inet dhcp

iface default-wparoam inet dhcp

In this example wpa_action will use guessnet for the selection of a suitable
logical interface only when no 'id_str' option has been provided for the
current network in the provided wpa_supplicant.conf.

The 'wpa-map' lines provide guessnet with the logical interfaces that are to be
tested as well as the default interface to be used when all tests fail. The
'test' lines of each logical interface are used by guessnet to determine if
we are actually connected to that network. For instance, guessnet will choose
the logical interface 'home_static' if there's a device with an IP address of and MAC of 00:01:02:03:04:05 on the current network. If all tests
fail, the 'default-guessnet' interface will be configured.

Please, read the guessnet(8) manpage for more information.

4. Troubleshooting

In order to debug connection, association and authentication problems,
increase the verbosity level of wpa_supplicant to log debug output by
adding the wpa-debug-level option to /etc/network/interfaces like in
the following example:

iface eth1 inet dhcp
        wpa-debug-level 3

Debug level number 3 starts the supplicant with the -ddd command line option,
level 2 with -dd an level 1 with -d. Values of -1 and -2 will cause
wpa_supplicant to be started with -q and -qq options respectively (quiet mode).
Any other wpa-debug-level value will cause the supplicant to be started
with default debug level.

If wpa_supplicant is started via D-Bus, then you must edit
/usr/share/dbus-1/system-services/fi.epitest.hostap.WPASupplicant.service and
add the debugging command line option to the Exec field.

It is also possible to have wpa_supplicant write all debug output to a text
file with the -f command line option. You may specify a file to log to with
the wpa-logfile in /etc/network/interfaces if starting wpa_supplicant via

Another method is to start `wpa_cli -i <interface>` in another shell before
starting the interface. Use the command 'level 0' first, to get all debug
messages sent to the control socket by wpa_supplicant.

To debug the ifupdown scripts that start wpa_supplicant and friends, use
`ifup --verbose <interface>` to get verbose messages, or set
wpa-maint-debug to any value to see shell code execution (set -x).

Hidden ssids

For reference, see #358137 [1]. In order to be able to associate to hidden
ssids, please try to set the option 'ap_scan=1' in the global section, and
'scan_ssid=1' in your network block section of your wpa_supplicant.conf file.
If you are using the managed mode, you can do so by these stanzas:

iface eth1 inet dhcp
        wpa-ap-scan 1
        wpa-scan-ssid 1
        # ... additional options for your setup

According to #368770 [2], association can take a very long time under certain
circumstances. In some cases, setting the parameter 'ap_scan=2' in the
config file, (or using a 'wpa-ap-scan 2' stanza, which is equivalent) can
greatly help to speed up association. Please note that setting ap_scan to the
value of 2 also requires that all networks have a precisely defined security
policy for for key_mgmt, pairwise, group and proto network policy variables.


5. Security Considerations

Configuration File Permissions
It is important to keep PSK's and other sensitive information concerning your
network settings private, therefore ensure that important configuration files
containing such data are only readable by their owner. For example:

        chmod 0600 /etc/network/interfaces
        chmod 0600 /etc/wpa_supplicant/wpa_supplicant.conf

By default, /etc/network/interfaces is world readable, and thus unsuitable for
containing secret keys and passwords.
