Description

The NMSetting8021x object is a NMSetting subclass that describes properties necessary for connection to 802.1x-authenticated networks, such as WPA and WPA2 Enterprise Wi-Fi networks and wired 802.1x networks. 802.1x connections typically use certificates and/or EAP authentication methods to securely verify, identify, and authenticate the client to the network itself, instead of simply relying on a widely shared static key.

It's a good idea to read up on wpa_supplicant configuration before using this setting extensively, since most of the options here correspond closely with the relevant wpa_supplicant configuration options.

Furthermore, to get a good idea of 802.1x, EAP, TLS, TTLS, etc and their applications to Wi-Fi and wired networks, you'll want to get copies of the following books.

nm_setting_802_1x_get_identity ()

const char *
nm_setting_802_1x_get_identity (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

the anonymous identifier


nm_setting_802_1x_get_pac_file ()

const char *

nm_setting_802_1x_get_system_ca_certs ()

gboolean
nm_setting_802_1x_get_system_ca_certs (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Sets the “system-ca-certs” property. The “ca-path” and “phase2-ca-path” properties are ignored if the “system-ca-certs” property is TRUE, in which case a system-wide CA certificate directory specified at compile time (using the --system-ca-path configure option) is used in place of these properties.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

TRUE if a system CA certificate path should be used, FALSE if not


nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_path ()

const char *
nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_path (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Returns the path of the CA certificate directory if previously set. Systems will often have a directory that contains multiple individual CA certificates which the supplicant can then add to the verification chain. This may be used in addition to the “ca-cert” property to add more CA certificates for verifying the network to client.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

the CA certificate directory path


nm_setting_802_1x_get_phase2_ca_path ()

const char *
nm_setting_802_1x_get_phase2_ca_path (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Returns the path of the "phase 2" CA certificate directory if previously set. Systems will often have a directory that contains multiple individual CA certificates which the supplicant can then add to the verification chain. This may be used in addition to the “phase2-ca-cert” property to add more CA certificates for verifying the network to client.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

the "phase 2" CA certificate directory path


nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_scheme ()

NMSetting8021xCKScheme
nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_scheme (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Returns the scheme used to store the CA certificate. If the returned scheme is NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_BLOB, use nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_blob(); if NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PATH, use nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_path(); if NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PKCS11, use nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_uri().

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

scheme used to store the CA certificate (blob or path)


nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_blob ()

GBytes *
nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_blob (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Returns the CA certificate blob if the CA certificate is stored using the NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_BLOB scheme. Not all EAP methods use a CA certificate (LEAP for example), and those that can take advantage of the CA certificate allow it to be unset. Note that lack of a CA certificate reduces security by allowing man-in-the-middle attacks, because the identity of the network cannot be confirmed by the client.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

the CA certificate data.

[transfer none]


nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_path ()

const char *
nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_path (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Returns the CA certificate path if the CA certificate is stored using the NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PATH scheme. Not all EAP methods use a CA certificate (LEAP for example), and those that can take advantage of the CA certificate allow it to be unset. Note that lack of a CA certificate reduces security by allowing man-in-the-middle attacks, because the identity of the network cannot be confirmed by the client.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

path to the CA certificate file


nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_uri ()

const char *
nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_uri (NMSetting8021x *setting);

Returns the CA certificate URI analogously to nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_blob() and nm_setting_802_1x_get_ca_cert_path().

Currently, it's limited to PKCS11 URIs ('pkcs11' scheme as defined by RFC 7512), but may be extended to other schemes in future (such as 'file' URIs for local files and 'data' URIs for inline certificate data).

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

Returns

the URI string

Since: 1.6


nm_setting_802_1x_set_ca_cert ()

gboolean
nm_setting_802_1x_set_ca_cert (NMSetting8021x *setting,
                               const char *value,
                               NMSetting8021xCKScheme scheme,
                               NMSetting8021xCKFormat *out_format,
                               GError **error);

Reads a certificate from disk and sets the “ca-cert” property with the raw certificate data if using the NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_BLOB scheme, or with the path to the certificate file if using the NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PATH scheme.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

value

when scheme is set to either NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PATH or NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_BLOB, pass the path of the CA certificate file (PEM or DER format). The path must be UTF-8 encoded; use g_filename_to_utf8() to convert if needed. Passing NULL with any scheme clears the CA certificate.

 

scheme

desired storage scheme for the certificate

 

out_format

on successful return, the type of the certificate added

 

error

on unsuccessful return, an error

                                   GError **error);

Private keys are used to authenticate the connecting client to the network when EAP-TLS is used as either the "phase 1" or "phase 2" 802.1x authentication method.

This function reads a private key from disk and sets the “private-key” property with the private key file data if using the NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_BLOB scheme, or with the path to the private key file if using the NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PATH scheme.

If password is given, this function attempts to decrypt the private key to verify that password is correct, and if it is, updates the “private-key-password” property with the given password . If the decryption is unsuccessful, FALSE is returned, error is set, and no internal data is changed. If no password is given, the private key is assumed to be valid, no decryption is performed, and the password may be set at a later time.

WARNING: the private key property is not a "secret" property, and thus unencrypted private key data using the BLOB scheme may be readable by unprivileged users. Private keys should always be encrypted with a private key password to prevent unauthorized access to unencrypted private key data.

Parameters

setting

the NMSetting8021x

 

value

when scheme is set to either NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_PATH or NM_SETTING_802_1X_CK_SCHEME_BLOB, pass the path of the private key file (PEM, DER, or PKCS#12 format). The path must be UTF-8 encoded; use g_filename_to_utf8() to convert if needed. Passing NULL with any scheme clears the private key.

 

password

password used to decrypt the private key, or NULL if the password is unknown. If the password is given but fails to decrypt the private key, an error is returned.

 

scheme

desired storage scheme for the private key

 

out_format

on successful return, the type of the private key added

 

error

on unsuccessful return, an error

 

Returns
