SYNOPSIS


.Cd "device wlan_xauth"

DESCRIPTION

The wlan_xauth module implements an authenticator plugin that is intended for use with user-mode authentication implementations such as hostapd. It hooks into the 802.11 layer and does nothing. As a result, 802.11 stations that associate are not authorized to send or receive frames until they are authorized by an external agent; typically using a protocol such as WPA, 802.1x, or 802.11i. The wlan_xauth module is an 802.11 authenticator plugin module for use by the wlan(4) module. This module is automatically loaded if an application configures an 802.11 device for operation as an AP with WPA or 802.1x authentication.
