SubjectRE: 802.1x support

|Hi All,
|Does the kernel has support to 802.1x?
|Best regards,
|Rodrigo Ramos

The kernel has the support of Crypto used, I don't know if you are talking
about wired or wireless.

It has what is needed with AES, TKIP and so on for WPA, I think 1x is
transparent to the kernel and what you really need is the supplicant
software for the authentication. Take a look at wpa_supplicant and

You can use EAP, PEAP, LEAP and so on... I believe this is most based on the
driver of the NIC you use, and not that much maybe with the kernel (maybe
some interaction) but so the answer for your question would be. It has
whatever 1x needs.
