wlan_xauth -- External authenticator support for 802.11 devices
The wlan_xauth module is a wlan(4) authenticator plugin for use with
user-mode authentication implementations such as hostapd. It hooks into
the 802.11 layer and does nothing. As a result, 802.11 stations that as-
sociate are not authorized to send or receive frames until they are
authorized by an external agent; typically using a protocol such as WPA,
802.1x, or 802.11i.
More information can be found in the IEEE 802.11, WPA, and 802.11i Stan-
The wlan_xauth driver first appeared in FreeBSD 6.0.
