Subject:Crypt Column in Network List
Date:19:54:57 16/04/2011

I am wondering what the letters in the C column mean.

I have Kismet 2011-01-R1. I start it up with everything default. In the Network List, I see that there is a column labeled C. If I go to Kismet > Preferences > Network Columns, the Network List Column Preferences window comes up. There, I can see that the C column is "crypt", with a description of "Encryption options".

I have looked at Kismet's documentation, and searched this forum and others, yet nowhere can I find what the letters in the C column mean. I am seeing W, N, O, and ? presently. Can anyone give me a key for this column?

And while we're at it, how about a key for the colors in the Network List? I found a nondescriptive color key under Kismet > Preferences > Colors:
Blue: Netlist Header or Netlist Group
Green: Netlist Unencrypted
Red: Netlist WEP
Yellow: Netlist Encrypted
Hi-magenta: Netlist Decrypted
More details, like the difference between WEP and Encrypted, and what Header means, would be nice.
