I've been poking around the internals of wpa_supplicant
using the eapol_test propgram. I debugged a client trying to
access an AP that was used as a pass-through to connect
to a RADIUS server. All stationed on my localhost.
The process was revolving state machines SUPP_PAE,
KEY_RX, SUPP_BE, and the peer's state machine
Could you please elaborate on the meaning of the first three?
What is PAE, KEY_RX and BE?
rfc 4137 only mentiones peer's sm and a full-authenticator
(in a pass through mode). Which sm is responsible for what?
thanks a lot!
