    OS Great job everyone keep it up No GSoC For Haiku Details Written by DaaT Published 09 April 2013 After 6 straight years as a mentor organization unfortunately Haiku wasn t selected for Google Summer of Code 2013 Haiku s participation of GSoC had its ups and downs but last year was its strongest hopefully it won t be long until Haiku is back in the GSoC game Thanks to those who took part in the effort to get Haiku selected it wasn t meant to be this time around Out of 417 total candidates 177 organizations were selected best of luck to them WPA Supplicant Updated Updated Details Written by DaaT Published 31 March 2013 Michael Lotz updated last night Haiku s implementation of the wpa supplicant the wonderful piece of software that allows us to use our wireless connections while using our favorite OS This brought it up to version 2 0 but more importantly than version numbering it brought some big changes where the users are concerned A small but most welcomed at least by me change was giving focus on start to the password field Small thing I know I just found it annoying A big change is implementing leaving a network but an even bigger change the big one is storing of the password using BKeyStore I spoke with Michael this afternoon thanks for taking the time about these changes and one thing he mentioned is the work that still needs to be done fixing the existing problems His next target is to fix the autojoin logic This is caused by the net server initiating random autojoin requests which if the password is stored breaks the connection though it s not noticeable by the user This is a tough one since the joining process is asynchronous making it very hard to choose the right moment when to start an autojoin especially when as Michael mentioned the wpa supplicant isn t providing useful feedback One other thing Michael mentioned for the near future is the possibility of integrating the keystore server into the registrar or the app server This would not only mean one less server running but also seeing as the registrar already handles user management along with encrypted passwords a very nice fit A couple more items were mentioned the encryption of the keystore seeing as at the moment it s in plain BMessage and making applications fully verified Encryption of the keystore pretty much explains itself you store keys you want them to be encrypted As for applications being fully verified it s important since its goal is to prevent rogue applications posing as another and gaining access to its keystore One possibility mentioned by Michael is to run a checksum over the running application which can then be queried Lots of interesting stuff in there a big thanks to Michael for taking the time I hope you enjoyed reading I did Update Michael just committed to Haiku s source some changes which
