I am doing a project which deals with porting the wpa_supplicant code to
nucleus RTOS. Our job is to develop test scenarios to test the
authentication procedure and the ported supplicant code. Can anyone
provide me some inputs on how to proceed with this testing? I am new to
WLAN world however I'm aware of the WLAN terminology and technology by

Please guide me on the following:
1. Developing Test Cases
2. How exactly do I make permutations and combinations for making more
.config files (wpa_supplicant configuration file)?
3. There are some sample configurations available. I am not able to
understand what the various parameters
(key_mgmt,wep_key0,wep_key1,wep_tx_keyidx etc..) mean. Is there any
documentation which can help me?
4. Does wpa_supplicant support ad-hoc mode operations and if yes what is
the limit to the maximum no. of devices which can be present in an
ad-hoc scenario?
