hostapd and wpa_supplicant for AP
Tue Feb 21 20:15:48 PST 2012
I'm not sure if it's the best place to raise this question.
Up to now, from the point of my view, the main difference between
hostapd and wpa_supplicant when play AP role, is that hostapd support
802.1X authenticator, while wpa_supplicant could only support PSK mode
as authenticator. Do I miss something on the difference? We'll decide
to select which one to control our AP based on your information.
Thanks in advance.
Besides, after 0.8.x version the wpa_supplicant could play the role of
AP, so kindly to ask if there is some plan to combine hostapd and
wpa_suppliant into one excutable binary?
