You will need to add scan_ssid=1 into that network block to enable
active scanning of the SSID. Please note that I have not tested this
with Linuxant Driverloader and at least some time ago they had not yet
added support for this. The current Host AP driver is able to associate
with an AP that had broadcast SSID disabled, so wpa_supplicant should
support this as long as the driver can be configured to do active
