Could you provide some more details on I can do this?
I have tried to join my test EAP-TLS network with the following configuration:
I left out:
When I enable it via wpa_cli, I keep getting:
<2>CTRL-EVENT-EAP-STARTED EAP authentication started
<2>EAP: Failed to initialize EAP method: vendor 0 method 13 (TLS)
<2>CTRL-EVENT-EAP-FAILURE EAP authentication failed
<2>CTRL-EVENT-DISCONNECTED - Disconnect event - remove keys
If I put the private_key and private_key_passwd into the
configuration, it succeeds.
How do I get wpa_supplicant to request for the user certificate via
the control interface?
