I deployed hostap and madwifi on my wireless network.
And there are 2 questions i am confused:
1.Can AP or VAP(both with only one ssid) have serveral
broadcast domain, and each domains are encrypted by
different bcast keys?
/ | \
A B C
That is: A B are in vlan1(or bcast domain1), C is in
vlan2(bcast domain2). Does AP(with only ONE ssid) can
encrypt these different bcast domain by differnet
If hostap does, can madwifi support this?
2.I read the hostap's source and find function:
The funcions: vlan_setup_encryption_dyn and
wpa_auth_sta_set_vlan are able to set different keys
to different vlans?
When A B are in vlan1, they will have bcast key1,
while C is in vlan2 it will has bcast key2.
If 1 and 2 are realized by hostap, does this function
(different bcast domian or vlan has differnet b cast
keys) have to be connected with radius auth?
Should i call the function "ap_sta_bind_vlan"
somewhere instead of configuration radius server?
Thanks in advance!
