    Default WPA support for airport

    Does anyone know if Apple is planning to support 802.1x (TKIP) in the
    near future? I looked at their website and couldn't find any mention
    of any wireless security besides WEP.

    Anyone?

    According to the article "Extreme Revolution" in the June, 2003 issue of
    MacWorld (pp. 79-84):

    Unfortunately, Apple hasn't agreed to support either updated
    security system yet, which could make Macs less secure in networks
    that uses the newer standard. (pg. 80)

    The security systems referred to are IEEE 802.11i and WPA.
