    It was found that nmcli, a command line interface to NetworkManager did not honour 802-1x.ca-path and 802-1x.phase2-ca-path settings, when creating a new profile. When a user connects to a network using this profile, the authentication does not happen and the connection is made insecurely (CVE-2020-10754).

    It was found that nmcli, a command line interface to NetworkManager did
    not honour 802-1x.ca-path and 802-1x.phase2-ca-path settings, when
    creating a new profile. When a user connects to a network using this
    profile, the authentication does not happen and the connection is made
    insecurely (CVE-2020-10754).
    
    The networkmanager package has been updated to version 1.18.8, fixing
    this issue and other bugs.
    
    Also, the networkmanager-applet package has been updated to version
    1.8.24. It also adds support for connecting to WPA3 / SAE protected
    wireless networks.
    
    gnome-control-center and gnome-shell have been fixed to correctly
    identify the connections as WPA3.
