Should the router only store a hash of my encryption key or is it stored as plaintext?
I believe (but not certain) that the WPA key is itself an encryption key, buy shouldn't that be encrypted like any other login credentials?
I realize I have larger concerns if someone can interface with my router to get to wherever the key is stored... But still, wouldn't storing a hash instead of the password/key itself be desirable?
It is possible I am not understanding something fundamental to the WPA2 spec. Specifically, I am a web developer, so I am looking at this from an angle as someone who would never store sensitive info to a database in plaintext... But again its entirely possible I am looking at this the wrong way.
