T-Mobile USA secures WiFi hotspots

by Ragnar Schierholz

T-Mobile USA today released a new secure encrypted Connection Manager that will enable users to login to any of the 4700 nationwide HotSpot wireless networks. With this new software, an 802.1x client will send their encrypted username and password to the T-Mobile authentication server, if the account is valid, the server will issue a private WPA key to the client, thus granting them access to the Internet.

Well, that's a good idea, isn't it? Let's see when this will be imitated by other competitors.

Except their lovely software is Windows only. Seems they don't want Mac or Unix customers.
