I was messing around with the wpa_supplicant
      Code:
wpa-roam.conf

file located in
      Code:
/etc/wpa_supplicant

when I realized it is storing my wpa-enterprise peap login information in clear text. This just seems like a big security risk, especially when you take into consideration that this login information is usually what gives you access to a large network with all your personal files in it.

For the moment I am going to stop wpa_supplicant from storing my login information, but I am hoping something is done about this issue.
