Hello all,


               Here are some explorative questions, so please bear with me J


               * How would I go on and configure a smartcard and/or
fingerprint based authentication on wpa_supplicant? 


* Which of the EAP methods in a WPA2 Enterprise scheme are more suitable for
a smartcard and which for a fingerprint based authentication? I would assume
that certain EAP methods are more suitable than others, since for example a
smartcard could have a client's certificate whereas a fingerprint couldn't.


* Is there any particular model of a  smartcard or fingerprint hardware that
someone has used successfully on Linux (Ubuntu if possible) and can


Thanks a lot,
