NAME

wlan_xauth -- External authenticator support for 802.11 devices

SYNOPSIS

device wlan_xauth

DESCRIPTION

The wlan_xauth module is a wlan(4) authenticator plugin 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 as- sociate 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.
