Dear All,

         Suppose there is no hardware support for
encryption/decryption for Wi-Fi devices. Will the data be
encrypted/decrypted by software implementation. If yes, is it done at
the application level or at the kernel level (mac80211).
Kindly clarify.
If the question has to be rephrased, please do it
