 Hi Jouni Malinen,

Is it possible to act supplicant as an authenticator? If yes, then how?
If we enable the flag CONFIG_AP, how the supplicant changed?

 I found the supplicant is OK to work with IBSS RSN. But is the
hostapd 0.7 supports IBSS RSN(If I can create that one)? Is there
any code in hostapd, that will response the supplicant's 4-way
handshake messages in IBSS RSN security mode?

 hostapd? What would you use hostapd for here? It is only to support AP
mode.. When you enabled IBSS RSN in wpa_supplicant, you will get both
the Supplicant and Authenticator functionality included into the
wpa_supplicant build.
