Global Protect Client and KRACK WPA2 exploit

Will the GP VPN client provide encryption for WPA2 sessions comprimised by the recent KRACK method?

 

Does that cover all the OS varients - Win, Mac, IoS, android?

 

I realize that only covers traffic routed back to the firewall.

KRACK enables attacker to see traffic encrypted with WPA2 in clear but GlobalProtect traffic adds anoter layer of encryption (depending on configuration either SSL or IPSec).

 

So wifi attacked by KRACK method is as secure as hotel or airport public wifi. 

With GlobalProtect you are still secured.
