I also worked on OpenBSD's net80211 stack and implemented hostapd(8), an IAPP service that is taking care of wireless networks. On the practical side, I did some consulting about WLAN security and was able to run large wireless networks using OpenBSD-based access points with ath(4) and hostapd(8) on events like 21c3 or What-The-Hack. ---- [Read more on undeadly...](http://www.undeadly.org/cgi?action=article&sid=20051008150710)
