#3223: libbsd: wpa_supplicant has to be started dynamically

     Type:  enhancement         |     Status:  new
 Priority:  normal              |  Milestone:  Indefinite
Component:  network/libbsd      |    Version:  5
 Severity:  normal              |   Keywords:  libbsd WiFi WLAN
 To connect to a WPA encrypted network using libbsd it is currently
 necessary to restart the wpa_supplicant for each new connection. A better
 solution for that should be found.

 In FreeBSD, the wpa_supplicant will somehow automatically be started if
 the `ifconfig_<interface>` line or rc.conf contains a WPA (see
 rc.conf(5)] section ''network_interfaces'').

 The rtems-libbsd should have a similar mechanism. One possibility would be
 to try to make the dhcpcd script hooks usable on RTEMS and start
 wpa_supplicant from a hook.
