Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2911-01
Posted Oct 18, 2017
Authored by Red Hat | Site access.redhat.com

Red Hat Security Advisory 2017-2911-01 - The wpa_supplicant packages contain an 802.1X Supplicant with support for WEP, WPA, WPA2, and various EAP authentication methods. They implement key negotiation with a WPA Authenticator for client stations and controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11 authentication and association of the WLAN driver. Security Fix: A new exploitation technique called key reinstallation attacks affecting WPA2 has been discovered. A remote attacker within Wi-Fi range could exploit these attacks to decrypt Wi-Fi traffic or possibly inject forged Wi-Fi packets by manipulating cryptographic handshakes used by the WPA2 protocol.

1. Summary:

An update for wpa_supplicant is now available for Red Hat Enterprise Linux
6.

Red Hat Product Security has rated this update as having a security impact
of Important. A Common Vulnerability Scoring System (CVSS) base score,
which gives a detailed severity rating, is available for each vulnerability
from the CVE link(s) in the References section.

2. Relevant releases/architectures:

Red Hat Enterprise Linux Desktop (v. 6) - i386, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux HPC Node Optional (v. 6) - x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Server (v. 6) - i386, ppc64, s390x, x86_64
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation (v. 6) - i386, x86_64

3. Description:

The wpa_supplicant packages contain an 802.1X Supplicant with support for
WEP, WPA, WPA2 (IEEE 802.11i / RSN), and various EAP authentication
methods. They implement key negotiation with a WPA Authenticator for client
stations and controls the roaming and IEEE 802.11 authentication and
association of the WLAN driver.

Security Fix(es):
* A new exploitation technique called key reinstallation attacks (KRACK)
affecting WPA2 has been discovered. A remote attacker within Wi-Fi range
could exploit these attacks to decrypt Wi-Fi traffic or possibly inject
forged Wi-Fi packets by manipulating cryptographic handshakes used by the
WPA2 protocol. (CVE-2017-13077, CVE-2017-13078, CVE-2017-13080,
CVE-2017-13087)

Red Hat would like to thank CERT for reporting these issues. Upstream
acknowledges Mathy Vanhoef (University of Leuven) as the original reporter
of these issues.
