I'm trying to implement eap psk/802.1x authentication in my own project.
The only full implementation I ever seen is in hostapd project. As I
know, freeRadius implements only 802.1x PMK assembling and 4-way
handshake I must do by myself (please, correct me).
So, to pull out eapol_auth from hostapd and put it to my project
correctly, I have to implement environment of hostapd such as eloop.
This is not problem, but problem is in thread safety. My project have
multi-thread nature unlike hostapd.
The question is: can someone give me an advice about thread-protection
of hostapd eap authenticator? Does each call use some global data or I
can leave some calls without lock supposing that each entity (wireless
client) handles in only one thread?
