|The interfaces of the EAP server/peer implementation are based on RFC
|4137 (EAP State Machines). This RFC is coordinated with the state
|machines defined in IEEE 802.1X-2004. hostapd and wpa_supplicant
|include implementation of the IEEE 802.1X EAPOL state machines and the
|interface between them and EAP. However, the EAP implementation can be
|used with other protocols, too, by providing a compatible interface
|which maps the EAPOL<->EAP variables to another protocol.
|This directory contains an example showing how EAP peer and server
|code from wpa_supplicant and hostapd can be used as a library. The
|example program initializes both an EAP server and an EAP peer
|entities and then runs through an EAP-PEAP/MSCHAPv2 authentication.
|eap_example_peer.c shows the initialization and glue code needed to
|control the EAP peer implementation. eap_example_server.c does the
|same for EAP server. eap_example.c is an example that ties in both the
|EAP server and client parts to allow an EAP authentication to be
|In this example, the EAP messages are passed between the server and
|the peer are passed by direct function calls within the same process.
|In practice, server and peer functionalities would likely reside in
|separate devices and the EAP messages would be transmitted between the
|devices based on an external protocol. For example, in IEEE 802.11
|uses IEEE 802.1X EAPOL state machines to control the transmission of
|EAP messages and WiMax supports optional PMK EAP authentication
|mechanism that transmits EAP messages as defined in IEEE 802.16e.
|The EAP library links in number of helper functions from src/utils and
|src/crypto directories. Most of these are suitable as-is, but it may
|be desirable to replace the debug output code in src/utils/wpa_debug.c
|by dropping this file from the library and re-implementing the
|functions there in a way that better fits in with the main
