Hi,

There does not seem to be an hostapd equivalent to the wpa_supplicant function wpa_drv_set_countermeasures(). 
Hostapd enforces tkip countermeasures only if it handles the management frames. 
If a driver only reports association events, hostapd proceeds to the authentication phase even if coutermeasures are still active.

Here is a proposed patch to hostapd.c that fixes the issue:

$ diff --unified=2  hostapd-1.112.c hostapd.c

Cheers,
