I'm running gentoo on my laptop, and I'm currently using wpa_supplicant to handle wifi.
My configuration works and I can connect, but it is required to type in the plain text password into the configuration file. This doesn't work if I want to connect to a friend's wifi and they want to type in the password instead of telling me what it is. There's no security with plain text passwords.
How can I make this more secure so that some sort of encrypted password is stored instead of plaintext?
