Hello everyone,


               In the recent version of wpa_supplicant and hostapd, I've
seen some patches which seem to be for OpenSSL. I am not quite sure of what
their purpose is and whether I should apply them.


               I am having some issues with session resumption when using
EAP-TLS or EAP-TTLS with OpenSSL 0.9.8k (ubuntu 10.04) and I was thinking
whether the patches included in wpa_supplicant will help with that. It seems
that the openssl-0.9.9-session-ticket.patch might help with my problem,
however I am not running openSSL 0.9.9. In addition, it seems that there is
no patch for 0.9.8k and I am guessing that I cannot apply the later one,


Is my only option to manually compile openSSL 1.0.0 from source for both my
supplicant, hostapd and FreeRadius in order to successfully use Session
Resumption in EAP-TLS and EAP-TTLS? (although I am guessing that if hostapd
is not used as a radius server then it doesn't require the newer version of


Thanks a lot in advance,
