Opportunistic Wireless Encryption, defined in RFC 8110, specifies an extension to the IEEE Std 802.11 to provide for opportunistic (unauthenticated) encryption to a specific wireless access point (AP). This memo extends the method to allow the establishment of OWE keying material to other APs before connection establishment to these APs, thus enabling a fast transition mode for OWE.
