Would like to have a 802.1x authentication on a wired set up , using
wpa_supplicant, hostapd code
*Wired setup* - Supplicant connected via ethernet to Authenticator and
Authenticator to radius server is anyways connected via ethernet
*Current Setup I have*: 3 Ubuntu laptops , one running wpa_supplicant,
another running hostapd as Authenticator and 3rd one as radius server.
802.1x authentication goes through fine.
Since Authenticator(laptop), has only one ethernet port, how do we achieve
connecting it to supplicant and server? Should we use a hub/Switch or
something? As long as the Authenticator code can run on the laptop, for
handling the port, i can get the devices.
Is invoking the wpa_supplicant with -Dwired option and using the below in
conf file sufficient to make it wired supplicant?
In the defconfig ., enable WIRED_DRIVER and then in conf file, interface
will be made to eth0.
