Thanks Jouni and Saber for your help.

Regarding the PAM API, that reads the User and Password, I didn't know their is a PAM Module for that. I will try to write a module by going through PAM module writers guide and then integrate with wpa_suppplicant. 

As of now, I don't have much details about this. 

Regards,

SYED

Kerberos with PAM UNIX configuration and I want wpa_supplicant to read the Login
Identity so that a Single Sign On Solution can be possible with 802.1X for Linux
Supplicants .


There is currently no support for doing that in the wpa_supplicant. Or
well, I would assume it would be possible to write an external program
to do that and use it with wpa_supplicant, but anyway, this is not
included as an integrated part of wpa_supplicant.

Would you happen to know whether there is a supported PAM API for
receiving the username and cleartext password for the currently logged
in user? Any pointers to documentation for such an API?
