VPN - Encrypting the wireless connection

The Nehemiah core allows encryption and decryption to be carried out on the fly with very little effect on performance. This means that any insecure WEP traffic can be encrypted with a secure AES algorithm while the mythbox carries out other tasks. A patch is available for the Linux 2.6 kernel, which conveniently is what we are using. :)

Details of the patch, and the patch itself, can be found here.
