Properties

Table 113. 

Key Name Value Type Default Value Value Description
auth-alg
string
When WEP is used (ie, key-mgmt = "none" or "ieee8021x") indicate the 802.11 authentication algorithm required by the AP here. One of "open" for Open System, "shared" for Shared Key, or "leap" for Cisco LEAP. When using Cisco LEAP (ie, key-mgmt = "ieee8021x" and auth-alg = "leap") the "leap-username" and "leap-password" properties must be specified.
fils
int32
0
Indicates whether Fast Initial Link Setup (802.11ai) must be enabled for the connection. One of NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_DEFAULT (0) (use global default value), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_DISABLE (1) (disable FILS), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_OPTIONAL (2) (enable FILS if the supplicant and the access point support it) or NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_REQUIRED (3) (enable FILS and fail if not supported). When set to NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_FILS_DEFAULT (0) and no global default is set, FILS will be optionally enabled.
group
array of string
A list of group/broadcast encryption algorithms which prevents connections to Wi-Fi networks that do not utilize one of the algorithms in the list. For maximum compatibility leave this property empty. Each list element may be one of "wep40", "wep104", "tkip", or "ccmp".
key-mgmt
string
Key management used for the connection. One of "none" (WEP), "ieee8021x" (Dynamic WEP), "wpa-none" (Ad-Hoc WPA-PSK), "wpa-psk" (infrastructure WPA-PSK), "sae" (SAE) or "wpa-eap" (WPA-Enterprise). This property must be set for any Wi-Fi connection that uses security.
leap-password
string
The login password for legacy LEAP connections (ie, key-mgmt = "ieee8021x" and auth-alg = "leap").
leap-password-flags
NMSettingSecretFlags (uint32)
Flags indicating how to handle the "leap-password" property.
leap-username
string
The login username for legacy LEAP connections (ie, key-mgmt = "ieee8021x" and auth-alg = "leap").
pairwise
array of string
A list of pairwise encryption algorithms which prevents connections to Wi-Fi networks that do not utilize one of the algorithms in the list. For maximum compatibility leave this property empty. Each list element may be one of "tkip" or "ccmp".
pmf
int32
0
Indicates whether Protected Management Frames (802.11w) must be enabled for the connection. One of NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DEFAULT (0) (use global default value), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DISABLE (1) (disable PMF), NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_OPTIONAL (2) (enable PMF if the supplicant and the access point support it) or NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_REQUIRED (3) (enable PMF and fail if not supported). When set to NM_SETTING_WIRELESS_SECURITY_PMF_DEFAULT (0) and no global default is set, PMF will be optionally enabled.
proto
array of string
List of strings specifying the allowed WPA protocol versions to use. Each element may be one "wpa" (allow WPA) or "rsn" (allow WPA2/RSN). If not specified, both WPA and RSN connections are allowed.
psk
string
Pre-Shared-Key for WPA networks. For WPA-PSK, it's either an ASCII passphrase of 8 to 63 characters that is (as specified in the 802.11i standard) hashed to derive the actual key, or the key in form of 64 hexadecimal character. The WPA3-Personal networks use a passphrase of any length for SAE authentication.
psk-flags
NMSettingSecretFlags (uint32)
Flags indicating how to handle the "psk" property.
wep-key-flags
NMSettingSecretFlags (uint32)
Flags indicating how to handle the "wep-key0", "wep-key1", "wep-key2", and "wep-key3" properties.
wep-key-type
NMWepKeyType (uint32)
Controls the interpretation of WEP keys. Allowed values are NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_KEY (1), in which case the key is either a 10- or 26-character hexadecimal string, or a 5- or 13-character ASCII password; or NM_WEP_KEY_TYPE_PASSPHRASE (2), in which case the passphrase is provided as a string and will be hashed using the de-facto MD5 method to derive the actual WEP key.
wep-key0
string
Index 0 WEP key. This is the WEP key used in most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.
wep-key1
string
Index 1 WEP key. This WEP index is not used by most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.
wep-key2
string
Index 2 WEP key. This WEP index is not used by most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.
wep-key3
string
Index 3 WEP key. This WEP index is not used by most networks. See the "wep-key-type" property for a description of how this key is interpreted.
wep-tx-keyidx
uint32
0
When static WEP is used (ie, key-mgmt = "none") and a non-default WEP key index is used by the AP, put that WEP key index here. Valid values are 0 (default key) through 3. Note that some consumer access points (like the Linksys WRT54G) number the keys 1 - 4.
wps-method
uint32
0
Flags indicating which mode of WPS is to be used if any. There's little point in changing the default setting as NetworkManager will automatically determine whether it's feasible to start WPS enrollment from the Access Point capabilities. WPS can be disabled by setting this property to a value of 1.
