Hello all,

 

What does fast_reauth in wpa_supplicant.conf does exactly do?

 

Is this the client equivalent of FreeRadius session resumption so that if a
client roams from Access Point 1 to Access Point 2 to not repeat the full
EAP authentication?

 

Or is it so that if a client connects to AP1, then connects to AP2 for a
while and then gets back to AP1, AP1 would not perform a full authentication
with a AAA server because the client was connected with it some minutes ago?
I am guessing right that AP1 would just do key negotiation in this instance
and inform the AAA server with an accounting message?

 

Thanks a lot,

Panos
