Hi,

 Can anyone tell me which document/draft I have to refer to know more about

Yes, you will need an AP that support WPS. Many vendors support WPS at
this point, but I have had good luck with the DLink DGL-4500 and the
Netgear WNDR3300.

The two kernel driver changes I needed to make were to pass the WPS IE
in the probe response back to the supplicant and include the WPS IE in
the probe request and association request packets.
