does Librem 5 supports WPA3? If not is this a software issue on the roadmap or is it a hardware issue?
2022 it would be a huge no go for a security focused device to not support WPA3.
Most security concerns of WPA3 are as far as I know linked to transition mode networks (WPA2+WPA3) and it is time to move to WPA3 only access points and devices and ditch the transition mode for good. So buying a new device in 2022 that prolonges the life of the compromised WPA2 makes little sense.
In case it could be of any interest for a Librem 5 product owner my priorities as a potential user would be:
- Working WiFi with WPA3
- Working LTE Internet
- Working front and rear cameras for Video-Calls and QR-Code scanning.
- Working messaging apps like Telegram, Signal, Viber ect. and a working sandboxed WhatsApp getting spoofed metadata would be really a killer feature.
What I don’t care about:
- MMS - I have never used it in my life. For me it is a waste of time to work on this one.
- Phone calls via the cell phone network. It is nice to have, but I can live without them if the maimstream messanger apps work with audio and video calls and are sandboxed so that they get no location and sensor data.
I know it is a phone. But regular phone is not going to be secure anyways. We need the modem for the Intenet.
