WPA 3 got partially (SAE, OWE) enabled in v2:2.9-4. It would be great if the enterprise features were also enabled.
Fast Initial Link Setup (802.11ai) reduces connection setup time therefore it is another way to achieve fast roaming, besides Fast BSS Transition (802.11r).
AFAIK neither method works with WPA 3 Enterprise so one might choose to stick with WPA 2 but use a stronger hash algorithm for key derivation, such as SHA384.

Required build options:
# WPA 3 Enterprise
# FILS (802.11ai)
# SHA384
This task depends upon
