Do you happen to know of any AP/Authenticator supporting STAKey

For example, if there are three supplicants SUP1, SUP2, SUP3 in the BSS and if suppose two supplicants SUP1, SUP2 initiate the STAKey handshake with the same SUP3, then in that scenario, SUP3 would be holding two different STAKeys one for each supplicant.

Would that information be needed in the supplicant after STAKey has been
configured to the driver? If yes, then yes, there would need to be a
table of all currently live STAKeySAs in the supplicant.
