There is currently no support or plans for this. I've seen RadSec mostly
as a solution for communication between infrastructure RADIUS servers to
provide better security for proxying requests and not that much
targeted for NAS devices. What kind of network setup are you using
between hostapd (as a NAS, I would assume) and the RADIUS server(s)?
