To-Do List

         Security related

o   Move DH out of FTIE into own IE

  Do the DH values need to be covered by the MIC?

o   Authentication when the AP has no security

o   PIN or passphrase type authentication

o   Change the HMAC SHA-256 to TGr KDF

o   Generate a key for the MIC

o   Check TGu and TGv multi-SSID/same-BSSID. May have to add additional conditions to avoid different security configurations between peer STAs.

         Editorial

o   7.3.2.25.2 AKM values to be assigned by ANA (table 34).

         General

o   Can we use the 11i pre-auth Ethertype, or do we have to get a new one?

         New features

o   Off-channel TDLS?
