Can I use 801.1x but also allow plain connections

If I use hostapd with all the 802.1x security (Radius, EAP,dynamic keys),
what happens to stations that don't even try to authenticate? 

For example users that haven't set up, or even don't have supplicant
software. Is it possible to allow them access too. Ofcourse in that case
I'd like to limit them (with iptables) only to an info page, allowing
them to download and setup the supplicant software.

Is this possible with hostapd?
