 Subject:  Integration of 802.1X in monowall AP
 Date:  Sat, 06 Dec 2003 10:36:58 -0700
My goal for the AP that I am creating would be to implement some 
advanced authorization and authentication capabilities. The new wlan 
security initiatives call for using 802.1X port authentication to do 
this, and I already have a freeradius server and ldap directory set up 
for this purpose.

Would it be possible to offer as a function of monowall the option to 
enable 802.1X authentication on the wlan interface?  Would this be a 
difficult integration? And is it even a functional possibility at this 
time? My thought would be the use of the open1x package.

I know I could use ipsec or other methods to do this, but the overhead 
of managing the vpn outweigh the advantage right now.

Another method I did like a lot was using authpf on my OpenBSD 
installation to create an authentication gateway.
