All 802.11b cards based on Prism chipset supports WPA/WPA2 when firmware
1.7.0 (or newer) is used.
"WPA is designed to secure all versions of 802.11 devices, including
802.11b, 802.11a, and 802.11g, multi-band and multi-mode. As a subset of
802.11i (also known as WPA2), WPA is both forward and backward-compatible
and is designed to run on existing Wi-Fi devices as a software download.
As such, WPA devices should work well with the WPA2 devices expected to
appear in the market in 2004."

TKIP is Temporal Key Integrity Protocol which is part of WPA specification
and is not propertiary afaik.
If it wasn't for C, we would be using BASI, PASAL and OBOL
