Problem :

enter image description here
the WLANConfiguration.xml

the part where GetSecurityKeys is mentioned

<action>
<name>GetSecurityKeys</name>
<argumentList>
<argument>
<name>NewWEPKey0</name>
<direction>out</direction>
<relatedStateVariable>WEPKey</relatedStateVariable>

i tried googling and the only thing i found was a pdf file called UPnP-gw-WLANConfiguration-v1-Service.pdf the only null word i found in it is this and it have nothing to do with my problem !
enter image description here

i don’t even have that NewPreSharedKeyIndex that is mentioned there in my wlan xml file

Solution :

It’s an intended security mechanism

As critical info like the WIFI password shouldn’t be Grabbable thro some insecure service like UPNP
